Sunday, December 18 – 3:00 p.m.

Celebrate the season with joyful, festive music from Desert City Jazz and our sister ensemble, Desert Overture wind symphony, when we join forces again this year to present “Cheers! A Concert Celebration.”

We have some special treats in store for you, such as:

  • “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” which we received directly from the current leader of the Count Basie Orchestra
  • The Glenn Miller Orchestra’s arrangement of “Sleigh Ride,” with quotes from Glenn Miller classics sprinkled in
  • “God Rest Ye Mambo Gentlemen,” a fun Latin arrangement which is exactly what the title implies.

December always fills up quickly with concerts, parties, shopping, and family gatherings, so make sure you have our joint concert, “Cheers! A Concert Celebration” on your calendar for Sunday, December 18, at 3:00 p.m. at the beautiful Tempe Center for the Arts.

Gather a group of your friends and family, and join us for “Cheers! A Concert Celebration!”

Buy your tickets in advance! Ticket prices go up $5 the day of the show.


Sunday, March 19 – 2:00 p.m.
