Chris Coogan Christmas Concert

“A Chris Coogan Christmas,” the beloved seasonal favorite featuring the  Chris Coogan Jazz Quintet, will be in downtown Westport, at the newly-renovated Saugatuck Congregational Church in Westport, Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 7pm.

The Chris Coogan Jazz Quintet is comprised of Coogan on piano, Rex Denton on trumpet, Jim Royle on drums, Jim Clark on sax and John Mobilio on bass. In addition, actress/vocalist Michele Grace will perform a series of holiday classics.

This musical showcase will artfully blend jazz with traditional Christmas carols in a unique, seasonal concoction designed to uplift and energize your holiday spirits. Carols are first sung  and then a jazz quintet will explore the nuances of the same carols through improvisational jazz exploration of unique musical arrangements.

During the concert, Coogan will perform his  original Christmas music,  including the world premier of Geometry of a Snowflake, as well as a fresh take on some of the much-loved seasonal music such as Vince Guaraldi’s Charlie Brown Christmas and other beloved favorites.  Michelle Grace will return her wonderfully zany humor and musical talents.

Tickets:  $30 for adults, $25 for seniors & children 18 and under are free.

Concert seating will be on a  first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 6:15PM.

A portion of concert proceeds to benefit the Saugatuck local charitable mission.
Concession proceeds to benefit Staples High School’s own charity Hope for Haiti.
