2015 Heritage Winter Classics concert series

The “Heritage Winter Classics” concert series will be returning, held one Sunday evening each month, through February.  Presented by Heritage Sandy Springs, Heritage Winter Classics is an indoor concert series celebrating classical, jazz, and vocal music.

·         December 13, 2015 – The UGA Accidentals
·         January 17, 2016 – The Athens Tango Project
·         February 21, 2016 – Karla Harris Sings the Dave and Iola Brubeck Songbook with The Ted Howe Trio

December 13, 2015 welcomes the season with a holiday show performed by The UGA Accidentals, a 40 year a capella tradition from the University of Georgia. The Accidentals have competed in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella finals twice in the past 5 years, showing off their southern charm, snazzy dress, and pitch perfect singing ability. Their energizing performance will include holiday favorites, classics, and a few surprises.

January 17, 2016 will feature The Athens Tango Project, also from the musical university town just miles from Sandy Springs. When a group of international graduate students in music at UGA pooled their talents and cultures to form a band, The Athens Tango Project was born, taking listeners on a delightfully different trip to another part of the world. The band’s current members include an upright bass player from Argentina, a pianist from Brazil, a vocalist from Nicaragua, and a violinist from Poland. Their music is inspired and authentic as they share a passion for music that is rooted in other cultures, a great fit for the increasingly diverse community of Sandy Springs.

The series will conclude with Karla Harris Sings the Dave & Iola Brubeck Songbook with The Ted Howe Trio on February 21, 2016. Ted Howe and Karla Harris return to Heritage Winter Classics, bringing something rarely heard in shows and celebrating the music of jazz pianist Dave Brubeck: Lyrics! In this special tribute, Harris performs vocal versions of Brubeck’s iconic instrumentals, singing words written by a highly talented lyricist who also had the closest insight into Brubeck’s life and work — his wife of 70 years, Iola Brubeck. Ted Howe, a master performer, composer, arranger, producer, and teacher will be playing a Yamaha Grand Piano courtesy of Piano Distributors Atlanta.
