Summer Music from Greensboro (SMfG) and Highland Center for the Arts present Chaise Lounge at The Highland Theater.
Summer Music from Greensboro will open our concert series on July 11th with a free concert in the main theater at Highland Center for the Arts, presenting the six-person band Chaise Lounge — which performed to rapt audiences at each of our “SMfG on the Greensboro Green” free concerts in the GAAR tent the past two summers.
Chaise Lounge features big band music performed by five of the Washington, D.C. area’s top jazz musicians and highlights the wonderfully luminous voice of Marilyn Older. This talented band not only plays popular and swing classics, they also put on a great live show—one that the entire family will enjoy!
Chaise Lounge and vocalist Marilyn Older have wowed crowds coast to coast with their signature mix of cheeky wit and retro-lounge cool. Their unique blend of red-hot jazz, singer/songwriter classics, and circa-1962 lounge has made them one of the most popular live acts in the mid-Atlantic region and has vaulted their albums to top-20 rankings on the national CMJ jazz chart.

Get there early, as we’re expecting a capacity crowd and a limited number of seats will be reserved for SMfG season ticket subscribers. And if you’re someone who hasn’t contributed to SMfG, please note that this could become an opportunity for you to do so as we’ve invited Chaise Lounge to make an in-concert appeal for voluntary contributions to SMfG’s summer concert program.
This FREE concert is a joint presentation of Summer Music from Greensboro and Highland Center for the Arts.
