Cool Yule Jazz Concert

12/22/2024 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM PT


Old and New World traditions meld in Cool Yule starring renowned Danish jazz violinist Mads Tolling. The wonderful Christmas traditions of the Nordic countries—Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland—are steeped in mysticism with many of these traditions at home here in America. We invite you to experience the warmth and specialness of hygge, the Danish word for cozy that sets the tone for ushering in the holiday season. 

In the spirit of Yule, two-time Grammy Award winner Mads Tolling shares the Christmas celebrations of his youth in Copenhagen, blending the authentic customs and sounds of the Nordic countries with the joy and spirit of American jazz.

Cool Yule includes a special nod to Denmark’s most famous fairy-tale author Hans Christian Andersen with a medley of songs from Frozen and other fables, a salute to Julemanden (Santa Claus), Yuletide traditional classics and jazz renditions of your favorite American holiday songs including: Silent NightSleigh Ride, O TannenbaumI Am So Glad Each Christmas Eve and more.
