Friday, December 2, 2022
Old & 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 & Iceland—are steeped in mysticism with many of these traditions at home here in America. We invite you to experience the warmth & specialness of hygge, the Danish wordfor 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 & sounds of the Nordic countries with the joy & 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 & other fables, a salute to Julemanden (Santa Claus), Yuletide traditional classics & jazz renditions of your favorite American holiday songs including Silent Night, Sleigh Ride, O Tannenbaum, I Am So Glad Each Christmas Eve & more.
