Winter truly is the most wonderful time of the year! Chico Performances continues its dedication to bringing the true holiday spirit to Laxson Auditorium and what better way to kick-off the glad tidings than with Fiesta Navidad--a Holiday Celebration performed by Mariachi Los Camperos de Nati Cano. 

Next, you have five opportunities to see the most classic holiday ballet of all time --Chico Community Ballet's Nutcracker. Our last holiday performance will be Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, performing songs from their latest album, Jingle All The Way.

This time of year is all about being thankful for what you have. Chico Performances is thankful to have dedicated patrons like yourself and we hope you are just as thankful for the wonderful performances we bring to you!

See you at the theatre one last time before the New Year!

Holiday Tour - Jingle all the Way
Tuesday, December 14, 2010
7:30 p.m.   Laxson Auditorium

$35 Premium | $30 Adult | $28 Senior | $23 Student /Child


The Flecktones Holiday Tour joyously sleighs into town with a decidedly different take on holiday music. On the heels of their new CD release, Jingle All The Way, Bela and friends will rip through fiery, virtuosic arrangements of "Sleigh Ride," "Danse of the Sugar Plum Fairies," "Christmas Time is Here," and much, much more. This is the Flecktones like you have never heard before. 


This performance also features the Siberian group, Alash. Alash are masters of Tuvan throat singing, a remarkable technique for singing multiple pitches at the same time. They will perform "What Child Is This/Dyngyladai," "Sleigh Ride," and "Danse of the Sugar Plum Fairies."
