Cypress Creek FACE Announces Performance Lineup
A foundation in Houston that aims to bring the arts to the people, Cypress Creek FACE is proud to bring great performers and performances to its 16th season, starting in September. Highlighting the schedule are shows by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Kevin Eubanks.
"We are excited to announce our new season featuring 21 concerts, from the Free Children's Series to the popular Star-Lit!

The Star-Lit! 16th season will open on Sept. 29 with Dixieland and traditional jazz performed by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, a band from New Orleans that travels worldwide to spread New Orleans jazz.
On Dec. 31, a New Year’s Eve tradition continues with the Houston Symphony, which will perform its gala concert at Start-Lit! for the fifth year.

Jazz guitarist and composer Kevin Eubanks will be joined by the legendary Stanley Jordan on April 6 for a performance entitled “Just the Two of Us.”
The Star-Lit! season will close on May 4 with “1964 The Tribute,” reviewed by Rolling Stone Magazine as the best Beatles tribute.
