About Spirit of Light - SNJO featuring Kurt Elling & Cappella Nova

This concert is a celebration in music and song that combines the sacred and the secular in an illuminating new work composed by saxophonist Tommy Smith.

Celebrated jazz vocalist Kurt Elling and ten voices of Cappella Nova will join the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra to celebrate this new music that has been inspired by the seasonal iconography of the Star, Three Kings, Christmas Night, Winter Snow and the dawning of Christmas Day and features settings of poetry by writers such as Liz Lochhead, Rainer Maria Rilke, Norman MacCaig, Robert Frost, Franz Wright, Jim Heylen and St. Francis of Assisi.

We warmly welcome audiences, young and old, to share in this extraordinary choral and orchestral jazz experience.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Spirit of Light - SNJO featuring Kurt Elling & Cappella Nova are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
