It’s a Jazzy Christmas @Ellarslie

Friday, December 13
7 – 9 pm

TOM CHIOLA, Vocalist

With special guests Matt Clark on the bass and Chris Gall on the drums

Special tribute to Deborah Ford

Ellarslie favorite Tom Chiola returns to entertain us with classic American holiday favorites along with jazz standards from the great American songbook. The performance will include a tribute to the late Deborah Ford, an award-winning soprano and Choir Director at Trinity Cathedral in Trenton. Many of our friends remember fondly her performances of sacred music and jazz at Ellarslie.

Tom Chiola, a resident of the Glen Afton Neighborhood in Trenton for over 15 years, performs regionally on stage and in concert. When not performing in the theater, Tom can often be seen at restaurants performing from the great American songbook to the accompaniment of George Sinkler.

Pianist George Sinkler will accompany vocalist Tom Chiola.

George Sinkler has performed with Tom at Ellarslie many times. A full-time pianist for 40 years, he performs in jazz groups and solo at numerous venues, and is widely sought as an accompanist. When not working the piano keyboard, George often is working the soil as an avid ornamental gardener.

Bring your friends and family to A Jazzy Christmas @Ellarslie, a great way to celebrate the holiday season in the festive atmosphere of the region’s best loved art and history museum.

Holiday treats and beverages included in the ticket price.
