Ring Those Bells
A Jazz Kings Christmas 2018
Thu, Dec 6, 7:30 - 9:30 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Bells are a familiar sound during the holiday season, from the announcement of Christmas to the heralding in of the New Year, their cheerful tones express warmth and a familiarity to the many carols we sing each year: “Jingle Bells”, “Sleigh Ride”, “Carol Of The Bells”, “Sleigh Bell Serenade”, “Jing-jing-a-ling”, “Silver Bells”, and Longfellow’s classic poem “I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day”. To these add traditional sing-a-longs, and a host of sacred and songbook classics including “White Christmas”, “O Holy Night”, “Let It Snow”, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and so many more! Join Shirley Andress, Marisa Frantz, Bill Hulings, Bob Cross and the Jazz Kings as we welcome in the 2018 holiday season and ring those bells
