The California Center for the Arts, Escondido will host jazz trumpeter, Etienne Charles: Creole Christmas on Thursday, December 12, at 7:30 p.m. in the Center Theater.
Etienne Charles adds a new twist to the holidays with music from his dynamic Creole Christmas album.
Featuring classic selections from the Caribbean, American, and European holiday songbooks, Charles and his ensemble celebrate the Christmas season with unique interpretations of pieces from Charles’ diverse musical roots.
Charles shines a new light on tunes such as Mighty Spoiler’s hilarious classic “Father Christmas”, “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”, Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” and “Chocolate”, Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas,” and two Lionel Belasco waltzes: “Juliana” and “Roses of Caracas Waltz.”
