HOLI-Sleigh with J.

December 10, 2023
2:00 - 4:00pm

This solo holiday cabaret show features heart-warming holiday classics with a twist of spice that invites audiences to reminisce, hold loved ones close, and sing along. A storyteller at heart, world-class pianist and vocalist J. Chang-Tablada draws audience members in with fresh interpretations of timeless classics by celebrated artists like Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and Donnie Hathaway interwoven with spirited, tongue-in-cheek numbers from Elvis and Jimmy Butler (to name a few). Chang-Tablada’s memorable performance strikes a chord with seasonal favorites like "This Christmas" and "What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve" while adding unexpected and delightful holiday color with lesser known tunes like "Trim Your Tree." Chang-Tablada is one of Colorado Springs’ most beloved and prolific Music Directors, known for his work with the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, Theatreworks and Millibo Art Theatre. An accomplished entertainer in his own right, J. frequently takes the stage himself, most recently in performances at 54 Below in New York City and in his “Sing-a-long with Jerry McCauley and Friends” concerts featured at the Green Box Arts Festival, and his current six-show residency at the Fine Arts Center, “Songs in the Key of J."
