They will be performing a diverse selection of holiday music featuring classical lyrics to contemporary big band sounds, from Christmas to Chanukah to New Years reveling which will leave the audience filled with the holiday spirit. The theme throughout the second act of the performance will be warm weather holidays celebrating those who’s holiday’s do not revolve around ice and snow!
