Have you ever wondered what happened to all the gifts on the 13th day of Christmas? How to respond to a little girl’s question about whether Santa is real? How the Native Americans of the Great Lakes prepare for winter? Why nobody cares if Rudolph is so sad and lonely?
If you have, then you're in luck! The Jump City Jazz Orchestra will make your wildest holiday musical and literary dreams come true during their live show at Bucks County Community College Newtown on Friday, December 13. The 20-piece Jump City Jazz Orchestra, including two dynamic guest vocalists, will present yuletide stories and holiday swing in a musical event to please all ages.
