“Jazz” up your Traditional Holiday Season!

Cristina Romano

Are you tired of your usual holiday traditions, but still want to manage to get into the holiday spirit? From December 9th-11th Jazz at Lincoln Center is presenting their annual tradition of the Red Hot Holiday Stomp at the Rose Theater (located on the 5th floor of the Time Warner Center) with a jazzy twist on all of your favorite holiday songs.

Led by musician Wycliffe Gordon on the trombone and tuba, the show features a talented orchestra that promises to excite audiences by jazzing up holiday classics (New Orleans style!) to get them fully ready for December 25th.

Gordon said in an article on PlaybillArts, “people just relate to that time being a time of the year that you’re going to be getting together with family and friends—everybody looks forward to getting off work and kids look forward to getting out of school. In general, it’s just a time to celebrate. Some people prepare for it all year.” So, think of this as the perfect opportunity to escape from all those projects and final exams for a while and truly enjoy what the neighborhood has to offer to lift your spirits and get you in a complete holiday state of mind!

Shows start at 8 p.m, (except on Sunday when there is a special 2 p.m matinee), and tickets for the Holiday Stomp start at around $20-$30. For more information, or to order tickets, visit the Red Hot Holiday Stomp page on the Jazz at Lincoln Center website.
