The Chelsea Symphony: A JAZZ HOLIDAY
Kick-off the season with TCS in swinging style as we perform Duke Ellington’s jazz arrangement of a holiday favorite, the Nutcracker Suite. Jeff Beal’s Concerto for Jazz Bass, written for the legendary John Patitucci, highlights both electric and upright instruments. The program wraps up with two TCS holiday traditions: Sleigh Ride conducted by an audience member, and Aaron Dai’s The Night Before Christmas with a surprise guest narrator. Reception and silent auction to follow.
