The Columbus Jazz Orchestra heats up the yuletide season with the annual Home for the Holidays concerts, this season featuring band leader Byron Stripling and vocalist Niki Haris, daughter of soul-jazz piano great, Gene Harris.
While Niki excels at jazz, blues and gospel, and is in high demand at jazz clubs and festivals, it was on the international pop music scene where she first became known. Niki performed alongside mega pop diva, Madonna, on the “Who’s That Girl,” “Blond Ambition,” and “The Girlie Show” tours. Haris will apply her considerable vocal gifts to seasonal favorites and jazz standards for the CJO’s Home for the Holidays concerts.
Wednesday & Thursday at 7:30 p.m.; Friday & Saturday at 8 p.m.; Sunday at 3 p.m.
Tickets: $68, $60, $54, $50, $25, $15 (plus a $3 per ticket CAPA facility fee)
