Looking for a way to score early Valentine’s Day points with your sweetheart? Bring them to the Lincoln City Cultural Center on Saturday, Feb. 9, for a celebration of romantic music and classics from the Great American songbook.
The Lincoln Pops Orchestra, a 25-piece band that really knows how to swing, will be playing three sets of Big Band classics, from swing to samba and from foxtrot to polka. Come to dance or just sit and listen.
Led by trumpet artist John Bringetto, the nonprofit Pops are dedicated to preserving and passing along the heritage of the big band era. Their inspirations include Harry James, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday and many more.
Saturday’s dance will begin at 7 pm in the auditorium of the Lincoln City Cultural Center at 540 NE Hwy. 101, with doors opening at 6:30 pm.
Advance tickets are $13 or $25 for two. Included in the admission price is a long-stemmed flower for every lady, yummy heart-shaped cookies, sweetheart décor and freshly made punch. Northwest beer and wine will be sold separately.
