WHAT’S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS CONCERT:
Jazz up your holiday season with Grammy-award winning vocalist Dianne Reeves, legendary pianist, arranger and composer Billy Childs, renowned jazz artists and the Midland Symphony Orchestra performing music from Reeves’ celebrated album, Christmas Time Is Here.

Hear unforgettable jazz renditions of holiday favorites such as Carol of the Bells, Christmas Waltz, Let It Snow, and many more.

Christmas Time is Here is Reeves’ favorite Christmas song. She first heard it watching “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and liked it was different, was connected to Snoopy and Charlie Brown, had sophisticated harmonies, and brought generations together.

Reeves says this concert is about, “warm stories, comfort, memories, a lot of Christmas music and lots of other music. It will be a celebration with friends. It’s light, and it’s sometimes funny.”

Billy Childs joins Reeves on piano and has performed with Yo-Yo Ma, Sting, Renee Fleming, the LA Phil, Chick Corea, Wynton Marsalis, and Chris Botti.
