The magic of the holiday season is very much driven by its soundtrack, and here in the Fox Valley, we’re blessed with musicians who are bound to make warm memories.
Steve March-Tormé and Vic Ferrari’s Michael Bailey will team for holiday concert with variety and surprises in one of the most beautiful venues in the region.
“For Kids from 1 to 92” will delight audiences on Dec. 21 and 22 at The Grand Oshkosh.
The show will feature Emmy-Award winning violinist Mark Wood, an original member of Trans Siberian Orchestra and part of Billy Joel’s touring band.
“This show truly is a holiday extravaganza with everything from lush and beautiful traditional fare to great pop songs and really joyful rock,” Bailey said. “It has been so much fun at rehearsals to hear these incredible musicians dazzling one another.”
The show’s title is an homage to a key lyric in “The Christmas Song,”written by March-Tormé’s father, Mel Tormé, and Bob Wells.
“The whole evening is going to be a feast of musical styles—all woven together by the spirit of the season,” March-Tormé said. “Part of that spirit for me is getting to sing my dad’s ‘The Christmas Song’ (Chestnuts Roasting) — sentimental for me for obvious reasons, but even more so now that I get to sing it with my daughter, Ruby.”
The show also features The HD Horns (Ken Skitch, Tyler Jones, and Chris Felts), WAMI award-winning drummer Mike Underwood, vocalist and keyboardist Kathy Alan, WAPL-FM’s Len Nelson on accordion, the Neenah Touch of Class Strings led by Philip Smyth, and a special appearance by the emerging vocal group, Pegasis, accompanied by accomplished jazz guitarist Matt Hillman.
The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. each night.
