Jazz Performance of "A Child's Christmas in Wales"

Enjoy an original jazz version of “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” by Dylan Thomas performed by Alex Coke, Suzy Stern, Buddy Mohmed and Rich Harney at 7 p.m., Dec. 10 at the Harry Ransom Center.

The project began two years ago at the Ransom Center as a live reading of Thomas’ beloved short story with music, and blossomed into a studio recording project.

This holiday season the Austin-based jazz quartet will again perform the piece, mixing original jazz compositions, improvisation and sound effects with the classic prose.

A CD recording of the piece will be available for purchase at the performance. Seating is free, but limited. Refreshments will be served.
