Jazz at the MACC: Swinging Holiday

Jazz at the MACC: Swinging Holiday

Back by popular demand, guest artists Valerie Gillespie on vocals and saxophone and Herb Bruce on trombone. You haven’t heard Christmas done this way, I’ll tell you that! Some of our biggest crowd reactions last year came from Valerie’s incredible arrangements of Christmas classics. We’ll bring you a bunch of new Christmas flavors and a couple favorites from last season as well. We’ll send you into the holiday season just right, can’t wait to see you there!
