The Ne Plus Ultra Jass Orchestra returns to Kiggins Theatre to present: Holiday Spectacular! Join the PNW's favorite vintage ensemble Wednesday, December 14 at 7 p.m. for an evening of seasonal tunes and holiday spirit!
2016 Jazz Society of Oregon Hall of Fame inductee Marilyn T. Keller will join the orchestra for the celebration, bringing over 4 decades of gospel, jazz, and blues experience to the stage. Keller's career includes collaborations with Don Latarski, Darrell Grant, Tom Grant, The Black Swan Classic Jazz Band, and the Augustana Jazz Quartet, among many others. As an adjunct professor of improvisational jazz at Portland State University, Marilyn continues to inspire a love for jazz in future generations.
The evening will be filled with tunes both familiar and obscure to the audience. Popular holiday tunes from the era will be presented, including Winter Wonderland, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, and White Christmas, with the audience encouraged to join the chorus! The orchestra will also introduce the audience to seasonal tunes which are seldom heard today, such as Tick Tock Town, The Santa Claus Express, and Christmas Night In Harlem.
Tickets are $25, general admission, and may be purchased at the Kiggins website. Seating is very limited for this one-night-only event, so patrons are encouraged to purchase early to guarantee a seat!
