Christian Holder: “Dreams and Inspiration” in the Theater

November 7 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Birdland Theater is pleased to announce that London singer Christian Holder will appear in “Dreams and Inspiration” on Monday, November 7th!

Christian Holder enjoyed a successful13-year career as a leading dancer with the Joffrey Ballet and has worked withmost of the major choreographers of the 20th century, including Jerome Robbins and Agnes deMille. Christian has also designed costumes for ballet companies in America and Europe, and for celebrities Ann Reinking, Phylicia Rashad, and Tina Turner.

Christian’s solo singing career took center stage seven years ago in London and has consistently gained accolades and momentum. His new show, “Dreams and Inspiration,” with trio accompaniment, focuses on some of the situations and artists that have influenced him by igniting creative sparks in his theatrical life’s journey. “Dreams and Inspiration” will celebrate composers including Cole Porter, Sondheim, Goldenberg and Bergman, Rodgers and Hart, Jobim, Annie Lennox, Al Green, Ellington, and more. There will also be a tribute to Josephine Baker, a family friend of both Christian’s father, artist/dancer Boscoe Holder and uncle, actor/dancer Geoffrey Holder.

A special appearance will be made by Donna McKechnie!

“Christian Holder is now an elegant song and dance man with a weathered but silky voice reminiscent of the great Bobby Short. He’s an earnest storyteller capable of weaving magic into his tales, and his audiences adore him.” – Edward Medina: Theater Pizzazz
