“In Bethlehem in the grotto where Christ was born, a light shines into the darkness. The light is meant to serve, as light serves for so many religions and philosophies, as a symbol of truth and love and hope … hope that even in a dark season, we may begin to see the world bending towards the light.”
Charles Kuralt, from The Jazz Nativity

~Dr. Billy Taylor, CBS Sunday Morning “Brilliant, infectious music roars from an all-star band … a spell-binding production!”
~New York Amsterdam News “None of the classics is half so giddy, nor so utterly entertaining as “The Jazz Nativity” that burst onto the stage of Orchestra Hall on Sunday afternoon!” ~Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
“Anne Phillips has created a compelling evening in which the secular and sacred swirl and soar!”
~Chuck Berg, Topeka News Journal
