A Solstice Celebration The Festival of Lights

Friday, December 13, 7:30 p.m.

Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton joins the Grammy award-winning, classical-crossover ensemble Turtle Island Quartet in The Festival of Lights, a holiday solstice celebration. The Festival of Lights, along with an end-of-the-year celebration and the winter solstice, coincides with the Christmas season. From the songs of Hanukkah and India's Diwali to music from Vince Guaraldi's beloved A Charlie Brown Christmas and a few holiday classics, this program will explore timeless music that has been an integral part of winter holiday celebrations for centuries.

Turtle Island Quartet

The Turtle Island Quartet, since its inception in 1985, has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings. Winner of the 2006 and 2008 Grammy Awards for Best Classical Crossover Album for their 4 + Four album and their A Love Supreme: The Legacy of John Coltrane, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles, and by devising a performance practice that honors both, the state of the art has inevitably been redefined.

Tierney Sutton

Sutton has been Jazzweek's Vocalist of the Year, received the LA Jazz Society's Vocalist Award and has been at the top of critics and listener's polls. Sutton also tours with an intimate trio and the Tierney Sutton Band. Sutton's celebrated career includes multiple Grammy nominations, appearances at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and the Hollywood Bowl and a series of well-regarded recordings. JazzTimes says Sutton's brilliance is her ability to blend seamlessly and The New York Times called her "a pure jazz spirit."
