Soul 4 the Season

Fri., Dec. 4, 8 p.m.
In a world where Nutcracker ballets, classical programs and shows geared towards children frequently abound during the holiday season ... Haven’t you ever wished there was something for adults with a little more “Oompf”? That is exactly what you get when you combine FOUR of California’s strongest voices and most dynamic personalities into one BIG soul-packed show! It’s definitely a DIVA Christmas concert! “Soul 4 the Season” is a holiday journey that will take you from moving spiritual numbers to light hearted impudent favorites. Even a few naughty selections will be offered. This concert makes a deliberate effort to stay away from the “childrens aspect” of the Christmas season. And while it is aimed at a more mature and musically discerning audience the show is suitable for all ages. $30-$35
