Four renowned classical and jazz artists meld their musical perspectives in an unusual collaboration and unique celebration of the Yuletide season that is guaranteed to generate an abundance of holiday cheer.

Terri Richter, Martin Lund, Jeffrey Cohan and Tom Collier team up with a magical combination of instruments to bridge contemporary improvisational jazz and the "art music" of baroque and renaissance times.

Instrumental musicians have "jazzed up" melodies familiar to them in the style of their day for centuries, and this team's virtuoso improvisations on Yuletide favorites, and their renditions of classical standards such as arias from Handel's Messiah will bring together the best of jazz and classical worlds.

Terri Richter, soprano
Jeffrey Cohan, flute
Tom Collier, vibraphone
Martin Lund, piano, clarinet and flute
