The Broadway at Birdland concert series is happy to announce that for the seventh time, Broadway and concert hall star Daniel Reichard will perform his solo holiday show in New York City. This year's concert is titled "Daniel Reichard's Decked Out Holiday Party" and will deck the halls of Birdland Jazz Club on Sunday and Monday, December 14 (6pm) and 15 (7pm).

Backed by a seven-piece band of first-class musicians, Reichard will present favorite songs from past Christmas shows, and will introduce new material. Nostalgic and sacred Christmas standards, Hanukkah classics, and non-holiday songs alike will be sung. NY1's Roma Torre has described previous editions as "an instant rush of holiday spirit. Reichard reclaims the pure magic of Christmas." This year, you are his guest at a joyous, seasonal celebration. Festive, dressy, or decked out attire is suggested.

Reichard's special guest, accomplished Israeli cellist, Elad Kabilio will drop by the party, and the evening will be musically directed by Jesse Vargas.

Every year, Reichard donates all of his proceeds to a different charitable organization. For this edition, he will be making a contribution to Music Talks, which provides open educational concerts with opportunities for participation and conversation that reach children and adults alike, while we develop community outreach programs intended to bring music to new audiences, including children's programs through the YMCA, JCC, Big Brothers Big Sisters of NYC and NYC Schools.
