Happy Holiday
A Jazz Kings Christmas 2016
Thu, Dec 8 - Wed, Dec 14
Join Jesse Cloninger and the Emerald City Jazz Kings for our 9th annual Christmas concert! Jesse fills in as artistic director for Shirley Andress this year so she can star as Annie Oakley in The Shedd's winter production of Annie Get Your Gun, but he has promised to bring back all our favorites, from "White Christmas", "The Christmas Song", "I'll Be Home For Christmas" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" to "Button Up Your Overcoat", and "Mele Kalikimaka", along with a fine selection of sacred and traditional songs, including "O Holy Night" and "Silent Night". Don't forget to spruce up your singing chops to join in on some good old fashioned sing-alongs! As always, it will be an evening for the entire family not to be missed.
