Valentine's Day plans: Denver Jazz at the FAC

Still no plans for Valentine's Day? Don't let that bog you down, the FAC has a special treat! You usually don't hear too much about music performances here at the FAC — unless its musical theatre — but on Tues., Feb. 14 we'll be presenting a jazz performance by the Wayne Wilkinson Group, featuring Nelson Rangell at the SaGaJi Theatre! Come early, and enjoy a cocktail in the Deco Lounge where the Colorado Springs Conservatory musicians will be playing from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.

Nelson Rangell has been considered one of the finest contemporary Jazz saxophonists since he first burst on the scene in 1989. Backing Rangell will be Colorado’s finest jazz musicians led by Colorado Springs’ own Wayne Wilkinson on guitar. Band members include (all from Denver) Dave Hanson (piano), Mike Marlier (drums) and Kirwan Brown (bass).

Performance starts at 7:30 p.m. Feb 14. Tickets are available online or at the box office for $25.

...Or already have other evening plans? You could check out the last day of Strange Beauty: Baroque Sensibilities in Contemporary Art, the current exhibition at I.D.E.A. Space at Colorado College.
