“Our new season is the result of an intentional effort to bring the best artists and emerging voices across all genres to the Tilles Center stages, and to make sure those artists represent the full makeup of our Long Island community,” shared Tilles Center executive and artistic director Tom Dunn. “As always, it comes back to delivering upon our mission – entertaining and enriching our community through arts performance, education, and advocacy. This season, my first as artistic director, will build on Tilles’ incredible 40-plus year history as Long Island’s premier live entertainment venue. From a bespoke conversation with Lin-Manuel Miranda, to intimate performances with platinum and multiple Grammy winners Brandi Carlile and John Legend, from engaging, fun family fare and Broadway shows, to dance and orchestral ensembles and the hottest new jazz artists, this season will provide Long Island audiences with diverse, world-class offerings right here in our own backyard.”
