DECEMBER 23, 2023

Fa-hoo fo-res, da-hoo do-res.
          - Dr. Seuss

Who is this concert for? 

  • Burnt out musicians 

  • Cynical Christmas grinches


What will I know and what will be new to me?

  • We’re returning to the jazz roots of Ding Dongs of Christmas-past, featuring Sharon Minemoto, Jodi Proznick and Kate Johnson, who will join us for roasted chestnuts from Jackson Browne, Donny Hathaway, Ingrid Michaelson and The Pretenders. (Don’t worry, we won’t subject you to Must be Santa ever again.)

  • You’ll be tickled peppermint pink by new arrangements of charts by The Waitresses, Alison Krauss, and John Lennon, plus a few more secret stocking stuffers to be revealed on the night! 

  • Expect the same casual and slightly unhinged concert-going experience, featuring shorter sets of music with ample time to grab a drink at the bar - and yes, we listened to your feedback: this year, the popcorn will be free! 


How did this happen? 

  • Someone asked for a seasonal concert that the ensemble would consider attending.

  • Someone else, after too much to drink, thought “grumpy Christmas” was a good idea.

  • Ding Dong sells out annually - so here we go again!
