Jane Lynch: 'A Swingin' Little Christmas'

Join Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winner singer, actress, and comedian Jane Lynch as she rings in the holidays with songs from her brand-new Christmas album, "A Swingin’ Little Christmas!" and other holiday classics.

Fresh from her iconic portrayal of Sue Sylvester on Glee and her Broadway debut as Miss Hannigan in Annie, Jane will delight the crowd with poignant and hilarious takes on holiday favorites! She is joined by Kate Flannery of The Office fame and Tim Davis who starred alongside her on Glee.

"A Swingin’ Little Christmas!" is unapologetically sentimental, recalling the classic Christmas albums of the 1950's and 60's. The album features fifteen tracks, including fresh takes on ten classic carols and five brand new nostalgia-inspired originals, penned by bandleader, Tony Guerrero.

The disc is ripe with clever jazz arrangements, tight vocal harmonies and features a variety of instrumentations including a five-piece jazz quintet, a full big band and lush string orchestrations. Both Jane and Kate are well known for their comedic abilities, and while the album has several fun, lighthearted moments, there are also plenty of deep, rich and even serious musical moments to balance it out.

This performance will be held at the Center Theater at the California Center for the Arts: Escondido.
