After three sold-out holiday shows at the Rebecca Cohn last December, East Coast music icon Heather Rankin returns to Symphony Nova Scotia for a cozy, online-only “Christmas Special” of homegrown, heartfelt holiday favourites. Together with a hand-picked ensemble of Symphony Nova Scotia musicians, Heather brings her beloved, soaring voice to rich renditions of Christmas classics like Silent Night, Once in Royal David’s City, Olde-Fashioned Christmas, Now the Bells Ring, and Joy to the World.
Plus, Heather sits down with host Jordan Fisher to answer previously submitted questions!
