The salon-style performance captures the warmth, beauty and magic of the season. The 10-song set list features holiday standards, including "An Old-Fashioned Christmas" with opera star Renee Fleming, "I'll Be Home for Christmas" with pianist and vocalist Frankie Moreno, Jimmy Van Heusen/Sammy Cahn's "The Secret of Christmas" with Michael Feinstein, "Let it Snow" with guitarist/violinist Rob Moose, and a heartwarming rendition of "Silent Night" by the Young People's Chorus of New York. Bell also performs two classical pieces — "Devil's Trill Sonata" and "Polonaise Brillante" — alongside pianist Frederic Chlu.
