The Cleveland Jazz Orchestra has one again invited northeast Ohio-based vocalist Helen Welch to don her Santa hat and join them for their annual swingin’ holiday show. The musical selections will be familiar, and the arrangements will have that traditional, old-fashioned big band vibe that evokes nostalgic Christmases of the past. And both shows are family-friendly, so bring the kids.
They’ll perform at Akron’s Blu Jazz + on Friday and Playhouse Square’s Hanna Theatre on Saturday. Tickets are $25-$30 at Blue Jazz; $35-$65 at the Hanna.
