The Smith Center announces virtual holiday concerts to benefit future programming

The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, a nonprofit organization, will celebrate the holidays with several live streaming benefit concerts featuring two of the venue’s most popular performers, Jim Brinkman and Dave Koz, as well as the Broadway cast of the hit musical Jagged Little Pill.

The events will offer fans and their families unique online cheer in the comfort of their own homes, while also supporting The Smith Center while its stages are dark with a portion of the ticket proceeds from each event donated back to the center.

Grammy nominated songwriter and piano sensation Jim Brickman, a regular at Myron’s Cabaret Jazz, will continue his Christmas holiday tradition with a “Comfort & Joy at Home” live concert to benefit The Smith Center on Dec. 4 at 7:30 p.m.

Brickman will bring the live concert experience up close and personal by blending yuletide memories and holiday carols with his own hit songs such as, “The Gift,” “Sending You A Little Christmas,” “Angel Eyes” and “If You Believe.”

Ticket prices range from $40 and $125, with options to include an interactive Zoom Room, an after-show party and a stocking full of Christmas gifts delivered to the purchaser’s doorstep. A portion of each ticket will be donated to The Smith Center.

Dave will be joined on the virtual stage by superstars Jonathan Butler, Rick Braun, Richard Elliot, Peter White, David Benoit and vocalist Rebecca Jade.

For the first time in nearly 10 months, the Broadway cast of the 15-time Tony Award-nominated musical Jagged Little Pill will reunite on stage at 5 p.m. Dec. 13 for a one-night only special performance live from New York City.

The “Jagged Live In NYC: A Broadway Reunion Concert” will bring Elizabeth Stanley, Celia Rose Gooding, Sean Allan Krill, Derek Klena and others to the stage of Shubert Studios in New York’s theater district for a night of searing performances – and an electrifying dose of collective joy – alongside the Jagged Little Broadway Band.

Nominated for 15 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Jagged Little Pill is a new musical inspired by seven-time Grammy Award winner Alanis Morissette’s seminal album of the same name, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

Tickets are $27, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting The Smith Center.
