The Chris Milyo Big Band – Swingin’ Christmas
We’re beyond thrilled to present to you a one-of-a-kind show at Arlington Music Hall. “Swingin’ Christmas” brings the Chris Milyo Big Band & Singers to our historic stage, and will feature Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite in its entirety – along with other selections to warm your heart and get your toes tapping!
If you’re a lover of swingin’ jazz music, you don’t want to miss this holiday show, sponsored in part by the UTA jazz department, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Music Learning Foundation – a non-profit organization supporting music education in North Texas.
