Heritage Sandy Springs Thursday announced the return of the Heritage Winter Classics indoor concert series, held one Sunday evening each month, November through February, celebrating classical, jazz and vocal music.
The 2014-15 series is as follows:
o Nov. 16: That Mancini Magic! The Music of Henry Mancini with Cecil Welch. Welch was with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra during the tenure of Music Director and Conductor Robert Shaw when Henry Mancini, the Academy Award-winning film composer, heard him perform and offered him a position as his principal trumpeter and soloist. This association allowed Welch to perform with most of the major symphonies all across America, Canada and abroad.
o Dec. 14: The Spud Brothers. The group, led by Celtic musician John Maschinot, celebrates traditions from the best of old Ireland to the hollows of Appalachia. A unique combination of uilleann (Irish) bagpipes, banjo, fiddle, guitar, vocals, percussion and flat-foot (clog) dance, the trio will play recognizable Irish and Appalachian tunes, in addition to Christmas and holiday favorites.
o Jan. 18: Big Mike Geier and his Kingsized Jazz Quartet. It will be an evening of jazz and swing. Geier is one of Atlanta’s biggest entertainers, and it is not just due to his 6-foot, 8-inch stature. His rich baritone is influenced by the vocal stylings of Joe Williams, Tony Bennett, Oscar Brown Jr. and Sinatra.
o Feb. 15: Jules & The Gents. The series will conclude with a treat for couples when jazz group performs a selection of cool jazz songs from the ’20’s through the ’60s with authentic, polished jazz sound and style.
