The College of the Canyons music department and the award-winning COC Studio Jazz Ensemble and Lab Bands will present the annual Holiday Jazz Band Concert on Friday, December 2, at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center, or PAC.
The concert will include many holiday favorites such as “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” “Little Drummer Boy,” and “O Holy Night” that will have audience members singing along with the band and special guest vocalist Katherine Lench-Meyering.
“Katherine has shared the stage with the band many times and always brings a bright cheerfulness to every performance,” said KC Manji, COC music director and the jazz band’s director for the performance. “We love performing with someone of Katherine’s caliber and style because she has a wonderful voice, strong stage presence and solid musicianship. She impresses everyone every time she takes the stage.”
Band members Dennis Atkisson, Rob Rudolph, Lew White, Ken Gomez, Kathleen Maxwell, and Jim Brown will also contribute to the evening’s night of music.
The COC Annual Holiday Jazz Band Concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2 on the PAC main stage.
