The month of December just rolled in and brought with it the Christmas spirit!
The Central Florida Community Arts (CFCArts) performed a beautiful jazz-infused Christmas music performance to the Central Florida community the night of Friday, Dec. 2, at the Lake Buena Vista High School Auditorium.
"A Big Band Christmas is exactly what it sounds like: familiar, fun holiday music performed with creative and exciting jazz twists," wrote Justin Muchoney, CFCArts Music Director and Conductor and Vice-president of Creative and Production on the event's flyer. "You'll know just about every tune in this concert, but you've probably never experienced them quite this way."
The repertoire consisted on classic Christmas tunes such as Deck the Halls with Jingle Bells, Let it Snow! Let is Snow! Let it Snow!, Comfort and Joy, Rudoplh the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Adeste Fidelis, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, and more.
During the event, those in attendance were encouraged to clap every time they listened to a part of a song — or a solo — they really liked, as Muchoney said: "This is jazz, if you like it, we'd like to hear it!"
CFCArts is already working on its next productions. One that they introduced during the event was "Elf: The Broadway Musical," which will take place Dec. 16 and 17 at Trinity Preparatory School.
