Ring Those Bells
A Jazz Kings Christmas 2018
Thu, Dec 6 - Wed, Dec 12
It comes as no surprise that bells are a familiar symbol during the holiday season. Bells ring to announce the arrival of Christmas and they ring again to Herald in the New Year! These cheerful tones express warmth and a familiarity to the many Carols we sing each year… “Jingle Bells”, “Sleigh Ride”, “Carol Of The Bells”, “Sleigh Bell Serenade”, “Jing-jing-a-ling” and “Silver Bells”.
We’ll celebrate with poems such as Longfellow’s “I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day”, Traditional Carol Sing-a-longs and ring out the joyful melodies of… “White Christmas”, “O Holy Night”, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, “Let It Snow”, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”, etc
Please join Shirley Andress, along with Bill Hulings, Marisa Frantz, and the Emerald City Jazz Kings as we welcome in the 2018 holiday season and Ring Those Bells!
