Series kickoffs Tues., Feb. 20, 2024 with recording artist Gary Lynn Floyd
DALLAS (Jan. 31, 2024) – CC Young announced it will host Dallas legend Denise Lee and her non-profit organization Visions for Change for a seven-show cabaret series. The first show will be held at The Point, CC Young’s Center for Arts and Education, on Tuesday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. The series is free to attend and open to the public.
The series opener “Back to the Hideaway: A Celebration of Love & Friendship” features Dallas cabaret artist Denise Lee and renowned recording artist Gary Lynn Floyd. Floyd’s music has been a favorite in the Dallas community as he shares great chemistry with Lee and offers inspirational lyrics that leave audiences laughing, refreshed, and happy.
“One of our goals at CC Young is for The Point to be a vital part of the arts experience in Dallas for our residents and community at-large,” said The Point & Pavilion Director Brian Parman. “We are thrilled to work with the cabaret star of Dallas, Denise Lee and her organization Visions for Change to bring notable artists to our community and offer a convenient way for our CC Young residents, neighbors, and her fans to enjoy live entertainment.”
“After a three-year hiatus, we are excited to start our cabaret series for its seventh season,” said Visions for Change Founder Denise Lee. “Nothing touches the soul and brings people together like the power of music. It allows people to connect in ways they often do not imagine. The Point is a great venue for the show as we can invite members of the community both on and off campus to enjoy the journey of music, love, and connection.”
Additional shows in the series held at The Point Auditorium will feature more visiting artists including The Rob Holbert Group, Angie McWhirter, Peter DiCesare and others. Starting in March, shows will be held on the second Tuesday of the month.
Serving as the hub of the CC Young community, The Point is the focal point of activity, fitness, learning, art, music and much more. Its architecture, as well as its mix of meeting and event spaces make it a truly special place and serve as a connection between CC Young and the surrounding communities, continuing the community’s commitment to serving not only our residents and their families, but everyone.
