Focused on Women in Jazz, this series will feature a weekly talk and Q&A panel moderated by Jazz Arts Artistic Director, Joe Muccioli with guest speakers who are Jazz luminaries and Scholars. This Free community event is a great introduction to jazz for novices or a wonderful extension of knowledge for connoisseurs. Join 1, 2, 3 or all 4 weeks!

Champian Fulton is a mainstay on the vibrant New York Jazz scene as well as the finest clubs and concert halls around the world. She has performed with musical royalty such as Lou Donaldson, Frank Wess, Erick Alexander, Buster Williams, and Louis Hayes. From New York to Barcelona, Champian’s swinging style and charismatic performances have made her a guardian of the legacy of Jazz. Music education is also a concern near and dear to her heart, having been inspired and mentored by the late great Clark Terry in his tireless advocacy for the perpetuation of the craft. Champian strives to impart this unique knowledge to students around the world. In addition to her involvement in the Litchfield Jazz Camp and the Rutgers Jazz Institute, and as integral part of our own Jazz Arts Academy faculty, Champian has also been featured in many of our own concert presentations through the years.

Awarded "Female Jazz Vocalist of the Year" by Hot House Jazz Magazine, pianist / singer Champian Fulton returns to the Birdland Theater to celebrate the holiday season with this intimate show featuring songs from her award winning album, "Christmas with Champian", in addition to fan favorites from her 10 other recordings.

Champian first appeared on the Birdland stage fifteen years ago, and has since toured the world and performed with many Jazz legends including Lou Donaldson, Clark Terry, Buster Williams, Jimmy Cobb, Frank Wess, and Scott Hamilton. This year alone Champian has appeared in more than 10 countries performing as a leader in addition to appearing in a concert production of "Porgy and Bess" throughout Europe and a new revue of George Gershwin's music, "Here to Stay: Two Pianos, Two Voices", which opened at Birdland with two sold out shows this fall.

A perfect balance of Christmas spirit and Jazz sensibility, "Christmas with Champian" is guaranteed to make your season bright.

“Holiday genialness comes naturally to Champian.... Christmas with Champian finds her dispelling the deadening familiarity of dry evergreens... allowing listeners to hear a shopworn lyric and melody as if for the first time. 4 STARS” - Frank John Hadley, Downbeat

"Fulton's piano approach—especially in her solo turns—is a bit quirky, highly original, always inventive. Her vocals brim with appealing, fluid phrasing and gorgeous intonation—and soul. " - Dan McLenaghan, All About Jazz
