The Nova Contemporary Jazz Orchestra’s Christmas Concert is coming soon, on December 17 at 4pm to be exact. Importantly, the method of our Christmas Concert delivery won’t be to put it in a big cardboard box and leave it on your front stoop, making it vulnerable to grinches and thieves who say they’ll “fix it up there” and “bring it back here.” Nothing doing — we have a better idea in mind.
Come to the St. James Lutheran Church in St. Paul and bask in the warm glow of Christmas/Holiday Time music performed by us! Then stay for a cup of cheer afterward! Here are the details:
The phrase, “It’s that time of year again,” may mean lots of things, but in this case it means — excitingly — that the Nova Contemporary Jazz Orchestra’s Christmas Concert is coming up.
Our concert will take place on Sunday, December 20th, at 4pm at the Saint James Lutheran Church in St. Paul, and it’s guaranteed to help put you in the spirit.
This fine and seasonal set of music will feature many of Nova’s holiday favorites along the vocal stylings of Tony DeMarco. Our famed bassist, Pete Karstad, will also sing a Christmas classic that’s sure to be familiar to everyone. Coffee, punch, and pie following the concert. Please join us!

Tonight, the Nova Jazz Orchestra will be playing selections from Duke Ellington’s arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite.
This will be a joint concert with the Northeast Community Band under the direction of Tim Martin, one of Nova’s fine trumpeters. In addition to other holiday favorites, the Northeast Community Band will perform contrasting versions of Tchaikovsky’s music. Please join us!
