Cool Yule is a great way to kick off the Holiday Season! A wonderful variety show in the spirit of the Big Band era, starring two of the most decorated Best of State arts organizations in Utah – Caleb Chapman’s Crescent Super Band and Derryl Yeager’s Odyssey Dance Theatre.
The Crescent Super Band this spring added to their long list of accomplishments a performance at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in NYC. Their NY reviewer Jeffrey Williams said: “They ‘Burned the Place Down’ with a jaw dropping performance! …. I could not believe I was hearing players that were fifteen to eighteen years old!...If you ever have the chance to hear a group led by Caleb Chapman, do not hesitate to do so! Do not walk – but RUN to the box office and get your tickets… it is truly the experience of a lifetime!”
Odyssey Dance Theatre has been mesmerizing audiences in Utah and around the world for years with its eclectic and ground breaking repertoire. Fresh off their 17th smash season of Thriller, ODT is excited to take to the stage in an amazing collaboration with the Crescent Super Band.
Based on the Crescent Super Band’s new Christmas Album, this show will bring smiles, warm the heart and stir nostalgia as they bring to the stage Big Band renditions of many of your favorite Holiday tunes such as Sleigh Ride, Jingle Bells, Boogie Woogie Santa Clause and, of course, Cool Yule!
Odyssey will bring to the stage such holiday favorites as the moving Breath of Heaven, Three Ships, a Bob Fosse inspired Rudolf, and the hilarious Breaktime at Macy’s!
This show is a must see to get you in the Holiday spirit. Two prestigious and amazing arts groups together in one show – Caleb Chapman’s Crescent Super Band and Odyssey Dance Theatre in Cool Yule! Go to odysseydance.com for ticket and show information.
