Celebrate Valentine’s Day at the 14th annual “Moonlight and Music” Valentine’s Day Concert at the Deering Estate at Cutler, 16701 SW72 Ave., on Thursday, Feb 14. The concert starts at 8 p.m. and the gate opens at 7 p.m.
This year’s concert will feature world-class singer, guitarist and songwriter Allan Harris. Harris is best known for his interpretations of jazz standards, but his smooth vocals and guitar style easily cross genres, from jazz to rock to blues. There also will be an opening performance by jazz pianist and singer Ariel Pocock, a University of Miami sophomore.
