Ingrid Michaelson Brings Holiday Cheer to Fitzgerald Theatre 12/5

Ingrid Michaelson released her first holiday album, “Ingrid Michaelson’s Songs for the Season”, under her own label, “Cabin 24 Records”, in October of this year. The album features a 12-song collection, which was recorded with a 35-piece symphony in an attempt to capture the big band feel of the 40’s and 50’s. The new compilation also features duets with Leslie Odom Jr., Grace VanderWaal, Christina Perri and Will Chase. To celebrate the release, Michaelson set off on a 14-city tour featuring frequent collaborators Allie Moss and Hannah Winkler. The trio will be performing 3-part vocal harmony reminiscent of another well-known trio, the Andrews Sisters. Fans can expect to hear an assortment of holiday classics as well as Michaelson’s biggest hits.

When asked what it was like arranging classic Christmas songs and making them her own by Entertainment Weekly, Michaelson gave fans a little insight into her experiences, “I love Christmas, I love Christmas time. I wanted to do something that was an instant, nostalgic classic, basically. And I hired my two friends, who are both amazing writers and producers, Dan Romer and Saul Simon-MacWilliams, and they and I formulated this sound using a microphone [from] the 1950s and recording all the strings together instead of double-tracking one guy playing violin five times…. I just wanted to make something that would honor that and celebrate that and something that I would want to listen to year after year after year after year. It wouldn’t go sour, or go bad, or be dated.”

Michaelson’s tour promoting the new holiday album will be at the Fitzgerald Theatre on 12/5. A few tickets are still available HERE.

“I love everything about this time of year,” Michaelson said in a statement. “This time of year may mean something different now than it did as a child but it’s become even more special.”
