Composed, arranged and produced by Anne Phillips, Bending Towards the Light .. A Jazz Nativity is the traditional Christmas story told through the medium of jazz.Through the years many great jazz artists, including Dave Brubeck, Lionel Hampton snd Tito Puente, have been a part of it playing the roles of the kings, shepherds and angels. Charles Kuralt was our host. It is both moving and joyful and has become an annual family event.

Performed in full costume, the Jazz Nativity is a wonderful combination of theater, jazz and opera.
