Legendary Singer Marilyn Maye to perform two sold-out shows at Pearson Lakes Art Center 

Legendary singer Marilyn Maye will perform two shows at the Pearson Lakes Art Center this week.

PLAC Executive Director Bob Kirschbaum says Tuesday's show has been in the works for some time.  "A lot of planning going into this, in fact, I've got to give a lot of credit to Signe Kim Lauridse-Jones and our Performing Arts Committee.  We started planning two years ago.  A lot of people think that we took this over in lieu of The Inn.  We were planning this to have this in addition to her performances at The Inn, so we're having a 90th birthday party Tuesday night for Marilyn.  Sold out.  We had people in line when the tickets went on sale, and then she's performing the second night as well, just a performance, no party the second night, and that's sold out."

He notes that a special presentation is on tap Wednesday night with the Iowa Rock 'n Roll Music Association.  "We ove working with the (Iowa) Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame, so I think this is a real opportunity to have that award presented at the Lauridsen Performing Arts Theatre, so we're honored that way, and it's a special treat for the people who come to the Wednesday night performance. "

Maye will receive the Iowa Rock 'n Roll Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award on Wednesday night.
