12th Annual Holiday Swing Jazz Concert and Fundraiser Description:
The University of Montana Jazz Program invites music lovers of all ages to the 12th Annual Holiday Swing on December 16, 2023, at The Wilma, 131 S. Higgins Ave., in downtown Missoula. Tickets are on sale now at Logjam or by phone at 1 (800) 514-3849. A variety of reserved tables are available, along with a single-seat option ($25-$480 ).
All ages are welcome. There is seating plus room to dance.
The Holiday Swing’s special guest this year is trombonist/vocalist Aric Schneller (UM Class of 1988). Aric, a native of Missoula, is currently the Director of the award-winning Sam Houston State University Jazz Program. The event will once again offer two sets (5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.) for an evening of holiday big band classics, a short but rousing auction, and delicious appetizers (for the early set) or dessert (for the late set).

The Holiday Swing provides vital funds for the UM Jazz Program through scholarships, faculty and guest artists, and will also support a life-changing trip touring and performing at Jazz Festivals in Europe this summer for the Jazz Ensemble.
Performances are at 5 and 8:30 p.m. Doors open 30 minutes before each performance, giving you plenty of time to find your seats, fill your glasses, and visit with friends. Both sets include trombone and vocal solos, jazz renditions of popular holiday songs performed by UM students and faculty, and a live auction.
