Sunday, December 22, 2013
 First Presbyterian Church
   8001 Mesa Blvd
 Austin, TX
General admission tickets $15 ( $5 for children)

 Experience the magic of an old time radio show, as
 Texas jazz musicians Alex Coke, Suzi Stern and Rich Harney 
 bring Dylan Thomas' beloved holiday tale to life in Austin this December. 
 Amidst the sounds of songs, toys, and improvised music, 

A Child's Christmas in Wales sparkles with surprises, 

inspired by the enchanting shortstory.

The performance (and award winning CD) feature 4 new songs 

by pianist Harney and vocalist Stern 

with multi instrumentalist Coke employing a dazzling array

of toys that ring, pop, whistle and sing,

illuminating the original text in celebration of the season.

An Austin holiday favorite since 2006, please join us 
for this year's family friendly matinee 

and only public performance.

In true holiday spirit, A Child's Christmas In Wales

gives the gift of wonder and mirth

to music fans, families, and children of all ages.

     'Once upon a time, three Austin jazz musicians went Christmas shopping. 
They came home with snow, wistful memories of snow, tall quiet drifts of snow. They also came home with a storybook, a nostalgic Christmas tale by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. 
And they came home with toys: whistles and bugles and squeaky rubber ducks. The jazz musicians sat together with their gifts, their memories, their instruments. 
And then they created a piece of art - part music, part spoken word, part toy symphony ...'
Brad Buchholz, Austin American Statesman
