Produced by Robert Diamond, the evening will feature direction by Eddie Varley and musical direction by Mark Hartman. In a statement, producer Diamond said, "Due to popular demand, we're proud to present this first holiday concert, and we hope to treat the audience to an intimate evening of some of the season's best tunes. As always, you can expect a couple of surprises — the first of which, for us, was being able to coax [director] Richard Jay-Alexander into singing."
