The March 9 chat with Nixon will be held at the New York Society for Ethical Culture. Writer and broadcaster Nancy Shear will lead the 6:30-8:30 PM conversation. Nixon, according to press notes, "will share her thoughts on life, art, and her extraordinary career." The evening includes a question-and-answer session and a Meet-the-Artist reception with drinks and hors d'oeuvres for all members of the audience.
The interview benefits Music for All Seasons, an organization that "brings the healing power of live musical performances to residential institutions."
