Home for the Holidays

Columbus Alive

The Columbus Jazz Orchestra will get into the holiday swing with a returning guest from the U.K., by way of Cleveland. "Home for the Holidays," the next concert in the CJO's Swingin' at the Southern series, presents vocalist Helen Welch. A native of Norwich, England, the veteran jazz vocalist made her way on the cabaret circuit and on Broadway before falling for a Clevelander and moving to Ohio. Locally, Welch is already a favorite from previous gigs with the CJO at the Southern Theatre and the Columbus Zoo. This time, she returns to perform a program of holiday standards.

"Home for the Holidays"

When: Dec. 2-6

Where: Southern Theatre, Downtown
