Over 30 jazz greats and Broadway legends join together to usher in the holiday season

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, December 4, 2020, non-profit Jazz at the Ballroom (JATB) will host an hour-long virtual "Holiday In" concert to benefit the Actors Fund and JATB, and celebrate the unique power of art and music to unite and re-energize.

Taking inspiration from televised holiday specials of yore with music legends like Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, the concert, hosted at Bing Crosby's former estate, features an incredible line-up of musicians and Broadway artists.

"As we approach the holidays, we wanted to offer people some respite from the past few months and raise money for artists who have been so profoundly impacted by the pandemic," said Suzanne Waldowski Roche, Executive Director of JATB. "Our vision for this event is to provide a platform for incredible artists to bring a much needed modicum of joy to our audience, as well as some light-hearted festivity to the season."

Emmy Award winner Frank DeLella is the event co-host. Other guests include Kathryn Crosby and a range of award-winning vocalists, musicians and dancers from around the world.
