Mark Rapp’s Jingle Bell Jazz has been a sold-out holiday at Trustus since the first performance in 2015. SC Jazz Ambassador, Mark Rapp, changes the programming every year to provide new jazz explorations of holiday themes and tunes. Featuring some of the finest jazz musicians in South Carolina, Jingle Bell Jazz has provided Columbia with a new holiday tradition at Trustus Theatre.
With new Safety Guidelines in place, Trustus is welcoming a limited audience to the Main Stage as this popular show returns to the Vista. This year, Mark Rapp is turning Jingle Bell Jazz into a series by bringing together some of South Carolina’s most celebrated jazz musicians for four unique holiday concerts. Fans can experience The Little Big Band performing “A Gatsby Christmas,” or stroll down Bourbon Street with “A ‘Nawlins Christmas” featuring the Soda City Brass Band and Pete Neighbour, or delight in Dick Goodwin and Rapp bringing holiday nostalgia with their “Tijuana Brass Christmas.” No matter what show patrons choose, fans can expect great music, top-notch talent, and a safe celebration of the holidays.
Ticketing options include socially distanced seating for parties of 4 or less, or private tables for parties of 4 with a bottle of champagne (or wine). Safety guidelines stipulate that masks are required, mandatory temperature will be administered prior to entry, sanitization stations will be readily available, and the indoor air is being purified by newly installed Global Plasma Solutions systems – an air ionization system that has demonstrated a 99.4% reduction rate on a SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) surface strain within 30 minutes, the first instance in which an air purification company has effectively neutralized SARS-CoV-2.
