JAZZIN' with the CLASSICS by CANDLELIGHT for CHRISTMAS
Terri Richter ~ soprano
Tom Collier ~ vibraphone
Jeffrey Cohan ~ flute
Martin Lund ~ piano, clarinet and flute
In this program by candlelight, classical and jazz artists and friends from classical and jazz realms meld their musical perspectives and personalities for the sixth year in this unusual collaboration and festive celebration of the Yuletide season that is guaranteed to generate an abundance of Christmas cheer.
For the second year vibraphonist Tom Collier joins soprano Terri Richter, flutist Jeffrey Cohan and jazz pianist, clarinetist and flutist Martin Lund in an effort to to bridge contemporary improvisational jazz and art music of baroque and renaissance times by through the joyous melodies of the season. Instrumental musicians have "jazzed up" melodies familiar to them in the style of their day for centuries, and this team's virtuoso improvisations on Yuletide favorites, and their renditions of classical standards will bring together the best of jazz and classical worlds. A completely new program as usual for 2016.
