Enjoy a sizzling evening of bold jazz by the Willie Pickens Trio during the “WDCB Jazz Salon at Mayslake” on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County’s Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook.
Pickens’ legacy as a jazz performer and piano powerhouse in Chicagoland stretches over 50 years. His dense chords, percussive attack, and flying solos make his concerts a dynamic treat for the ear.
General seating for the performance — a joint effort of the PianoForte Foundation, WDCB Public Radio and Mayslake Peabody Estate — is $20 per person with a reduced price of $18 for students, seniors over 65 and groups of six or more. Premier seating at cabaret-style tables is $25 per person. Seating opens at 7 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, call Mayslake Peabody Estate at 630-206-9566.
Guided tours of Mayslake Hall will be available before the concert at 6:30 p.m. for $5 per person. The tours explore the history of the estate and the restoration projects now benefitting the hall.
Mayslake Peabody Estate is located at 1717 W. 31st St., one-quarter mile west of Route 83.
