'In Your Dreams' farewell concert features A. Paul Johnson, Donna DeLonay

A. Paul Johnson has been a fixture on the Tampa Bay music scene for many years, from playing piano for Frank Ferrante's Groucho Marx show at American Stage to composing a ballet score, Hello, Dali. Now Johnson and his partner, soprano Donna DeLonay, are leaving for the greener pastures (and winter weather) of Illinois, and they're giving a farewell concert this weekend at New American Theater. Called "In Your Dreams," the program ranges from DeLonay singing standards, like Once I Had a True Love and Hit Me with a Hot Note, to some of Johnson's piano jazz pieces. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at the theater in BayWalk, 183 Second Ave., St. Petersburg. $15. (727) 575-9241; newamaericantheater.org.
