Walt Disney Concert Hall plays host to a selection of holiday concerts that are as unique as the world-famous building's facade. First up, there's The Blind Boys of Alabama belting out rousing and spiritual renditions of Christmas carols. A little further into the season, the exquisite singers of Chanticleer share their repertoire, ranging from Medieval/Renaissance to contemporary. And for a finale with a bang, celebrate New Years Eve with Sergio Mendes and Sheila E., plus Brazilian dancers, at Carnival at the Hall. Learn More

JN is a wondrous talent and one-of-a- kind gal. The pianist was very good and one could hear occasional sounds of old from our lady. Unfortunately,a good deal of the rep was rather on the strange side and she now has major intonation problems. One of the encores was an assault on music.She looked fabulous and it was terrific to once again be in her made-up world. Viva Jessye!

One of those once-in-a-generation singers who has never followed in the footsteps of others, soprano Jessye Norman continues to build upon her own rich legacy as she brings joy, passion and her opulent sound to innovative recital performances and operatic portrayals around the world.
A 2006 recipient of the Grammy Awards’ Lifetime Achievement Award, Norman returns to Royce Hall after a breathtaking sold-out performance in 2005, performing an uplifting program celebrating love and the four seasons, including works by Brahms, Mahler, Schoenberg, Messiaen, Gershwin, Kurt Weill, Joseph Kosma, Richard Danielpour and more.
