Christmas with Holly Cole and the Victoria Symphony

Holly Cole ends her Canadian holiday tour in Victoria

Victoria, BC On December 20, Juno award-winning Holly Cole, completes her Canadian holiday tour in Victoria with a performance with the Victoria Symphony. Conducted by Giuseppe Pietraroia, this Christmas special features Coles signature style on such Christmas favourites as Santa Baby, Christmas Is and Ill be home for Christmas. There will be only one performance at the Royal Theatre, December 20 at 8:00pm.

There is intelligence and sophistication to Holly Coles singing that sets her apart. Coles singing has all the things associated with great jazz soloists and instrumentalists. Her voice is smoky, though not quite sultry; as sly as it is sexy; and brimming with adventure bordering on recklessness.
