Award-winning musician, philanthropist and CalArts School of Music namesake Herb Alpert and his wife, famed vocalist Lani Hall, will perform a holiday concert at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles on Thursday night, Dec. 20.
Alpert and Hall will perform jazz renditions of classic Christmas covers including songs from Alpert’s 2017 album “The Christmas Wish.”
The concert will also feature The Manhattan Transfer, the Grammy-winning contemporary vocal group known for incorporating pop, jazz, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, swing and symphonic music.
A legendary trumpet player with 14 platinum records, Alpert was also the co-founder of A&M Records. He met Hall, the original lead singer for Sergio Mendes’ group Brasil ‘66, when Brasil ’66 was signed to A&M. Alpert and Hall were married in 1973 and have been collaborating and performing together ever since.
Talking about her musical style, Hall said, “I am an interpreter. The singers that have influenced me the most are jazz singers. They always have the ability to pull you into a song and make it feel real,” according to the program.
The couple are major philanthropists through the Herb Alpert Foundation and have supported CalArts through the years. In recognition of a $15 million gift to CalArts, the School of Music was renamed The Herb Alpert School of Music at CalArts in 2008.
The concert starts at 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20, at the Walt Disney Concert Hall, 111 South Grand Ave., Los Angeles 90012.
