The dynamic duo of Nicolas and Desiree returns to Billings for an evening filled with song, dance, skits, and holiday cheer. Not to be missed, this inspiring concert will feature a range of classic to pop holiday songs, backed by the Billings Jazz Orchestra (aka, the Billings Symphony) under the baton of guest conductor and arranger Scott Jeppesen.
- Every show Nicolas and Desiree do is a mixture of show-stopping dancing and vocals that touch the heart assuredly as they please the ears.
- “The Christmas Waltz” is a song written by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne in 1954. Frank Sinatra first recorded the song as a single in 1954. He re-recorded it in 1957 for his album A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra.
