Beth Lederman and Jazz Con Alma to put sizzle in Lakeshore Music holiday concert at Tempe Center for the Arts.

Snuggle in on the longest night of the year in the beautiful Lakeside Room at Tempe Center for the Arts for a special evening with Beth Lederman and Jazz Con Alma in “Full Circle: A Winter Solstice Concert,” as Lakeshore Music celebrates another circle around the sun on Dec. 21.

Put some sizzle in your holidays with the soulful vocals of Steven Powell and Heather Jakeman performing the music of Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Michel Buble and Diana Krall, as well as music to celebrate the joy of the season.

“We’re doing a not-necessarily traditional jazz show, but a little bit more contemporary with music of these great artists mixed in,” Lederman said. “I’ve got these two vocalists with me this time, who are two of my favorites, Heather and Steven. These two singers blend together effortlessly.
Woody says . . .
“I’ve always wanted to headline Beth and Jazz Con Alma in our series and I asked her last spring if she would put together our holiday show at TCA this year. The winter solstice begins the evening of December 21 and we will celebrate the season in style with Beth and a room full of her ardent admirers, including yours truly.”
