“This extraordinary performance will keep Christmas in your heart forever.”
BENDING TOWARDS THE LIGHT – A JAZZ NATIVITY is a fusion of holiday joy, spirituality, and jazz history. It is presented in two parts: “The Story” and “The Celebration” with a running time of approximately 100 minutes - no intermission. It has been referred to as a “jazz opera” and the “Peter and the Wolf” of jazz.
The Story is the traditional Christmas story told through the medium of jazz.
“ WE'RE GOING TO TELL THE OLD STORY IN A NEW WAY...THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF JAZZ. AND WE HOPE YOU WILL FIND THIS FITTING AND SEEMLY. IT IS A VERY SPIRITUAL STORY. AND JAZZ IS A VERY SPIRITUAL MUSIC--THE MOST SPONTANEOUS AND PERSONAL FORM OF MUSICAL EXPRESSION. WHAT YOU WILL HEAR TONIGHT COMES STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART.” Charles Kuralt.
