- In-person event
As part of our Sessions series, NAC Popular Music & Variety is honoured to welcome Holly Cole live in Southam Hall with the NAC Orchestra!
Born and raised in The Maritimes, Holly grew up surrounded by music; her parents were classical players, her brother is a composer and a jazz artist, her uncle sang and acted on Broadway and her grandfather played Country & Western accordion.
Cole has received praise as a preeminent interpretive singer and arranger working between the poles of jazz and pop. Her unique interpretations are lauded as being highly musical, intensely original, sophisticated, witty, and sexy. Her approach is sensual, intense, non-calculating and without any retro pretensions. All of this has been a continuous virtue in the singer’s illustrious career, backed by passionate live appearances internationally, both of which have cemented her reputation as a major contemporary song stylist and a highly compelling, acclaimed performer.
Gold and Platinum record sales and countless successful tours including headlining with symphonies has brought many adoring fans and countless accolades.
In this very special concert featuring the NAC Orchestra, Holly Cole will bring us seasonal favourites from two of her most beloved holiday albums Baby It’s Cold Outside and Christmas Blues.
