Jazzinwith the Classics

Terri RichterSaturday, Dec. 29, 2018
at 8:00 PM


Terri Richter ~ soprano
  Tom Collier ~ vibraphone
  Jeffrey Cohan ~ flute
Martin Lund ~ piano, clarinet and flute

Four artists and friends on both sides of the classical/jazz divide meld their musical perspectives in this unusual collaboration and festive celebration of the Yuletide season that is guaranteed to generate an abundance of Christmas cheer - in a brand new program (as always) for 2018! We welcome soprano Terri Richter, who was featured in the first candlelight Christmas programs with George Shangrow.

For centuries instrumental musicians have "jazzed up" familiar melodies in the style of their day, and this team's virtuoso improvisations on Yuletide favorites, and their renditions of classical standards will bridge contemporary improvisational jazz and art music of the Baroque and Renaissance by way of the joyous melodies of the season, bringing together the best of jazz and classical worlds.

Terri Richter returns to us from Los Angeles after many appearances with Seattle Opera, and as soloist with orchestras, opera companies, contemporary and early music ensembles including the Seattle Symphony, Apollo’s Fire, American Bach Soloists and Pacific Musicworks.

This eighth annual Candlelight Concerts in memory of George Shangrow continues a tradition which George initiated with candlelight evenings of chamber music and holiday favorites over many decades.  Chamber music both familiar and new is performed by some of the Northwest’s prominent soloists.
