This year, writes Siri Vik, I am truly honored to stand in for my colleague and friend, Shirley Andress, as the artistic director for I Wonder As I Wander: Christmas at The Shedd 2022. I am so delighted to partner with long-time Christmas music director Vicki Brabham leading our veteran members of The Emerald City Jazz Kings, as well as favorite Shedd vocalists Bill Hulings, Dylan Stasack, and Vanessa Greenway.
Having performed myself on four past Christmases with Shirley and the gang, I know how much care goes into making each a fun, warm and entertaining evening that many of you have come to regard as a holiday tradition for yourselves and your families. That will be the heart of this year's Christmas at The Shedd as well. In addition, this year I wanted to share with you some of my own musical holiday traditions— carols and sounds from around the world, or from long ago, songs that are close to me personally, and that have long enchanted me with the magic and mystery of the season. I hope you will join us this year!
