Dianne Reeves Philadelphia, PA: The Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts kicks off the holiday season with a festive performance from Grammy® award-winning jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves.

Reeves’ lively performance will feature jazz renditions of holiday favorites such as “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and “Let It Snow” from Reeves’ first holiday album, Christmas Time Is Here. Critic Ben Ratliff of The New York Times raved, “Ms. Reeves, a jazz singer of frequently astonishing skill, takes the assignment seriously; this is one of the best Christmas CD’s I’ve heard.”
