Jazz Vespers 

When: Thu., Dec. 8, 7:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $7 GA, $5 students/seniors
Compared with the 87 years of the University of Kansas' Holiday Vespers, the school's Jazz Vespers are a relatively new tradition. Their tunes reflect the program's youth by playing pepped-up versions of holiday classics (imagine a Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite). Presented by the KU School of Music, this year's performance features the ebullient Chuck Berg (professor of film and media studies) as master of ceremonies, presiding over a show with the warm tones of Irving Berlin's "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" and Herbie Hancock's funky arrangement of "Deck the Halls." The concert starts promptly at 7:30 p.m. at the Lied Center of Kansas (1600 Stewart Drive, 785-864-2787). Tickets cost $7 for the general public, or $5 for seniors and students. See lied.ku.edu for more information.
