Usher In the Holidays with "A Peter White Christmas"

Three of today's most popular musicians are bringing their jazz-flavored carols to Greater Reading for the holiday season. A Peter White Christmas, a concert featuring jazz sensations Peter White, Mindi Abair and Rick Braun and presented by the Berks Arts Council (BAC) is set for Sunday, Dec. 5, at the Miller Center for the Arts on the campus of Reading Area Community College in downtown Reading.

"This is a unique year for our holiday concert in that we are offering two performances instead of one," noted BAC Executive Director Chris Cannon. "We are very excited about this addition, as it will give more people the opportunity to experience these amazing and talented performers."

There will be two shows, one at 3 p.m. and one at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, Sept. 7 at 10 a.m. and are $39. All seats are reserved, and only 500 tickets are available for each show.

Peter White is an extraordinary and fluent acoustic guitarist whose skills are world-renown. Mindi Abair is a double-edged talent from her fluid saxophone to emotive vocals. Rick Braun is a masterful trumpet/flugelhorn player whose warm tones transform the simplest melody into a work of art. They have separately sold literally millions of records, and together they put their creative talents to work, giving a marvelous, fresh feel to your favorite Christmas classics!

This show, a rousing opening event for the 21st annual Berks Jazz Fest, is a great way to start the Christmas season, and is guaranteed to put you in the holiday mood!
