A Cabaret Christmas Playlist For A Joyful, Jolly Season

Broadway World Cabaret curates twenty of our favorite holiday recordings.

A Cabaret Christmas Playlist For A Joyful, Jolly Season Each year artists in every genre of music release holiday albums. Everyone seems to have one, whatever their demographic, from style to spirituality. The Christmas album is one of the most popular types of record to make, if not THE most popular. Each season we are treated to new versions of old classics and newly-composed recordings that will become classic.

Among the new Christmas records this year is IT MUST HAVE BEEN THE MISTLETOE, the new album by cabaret artists Regina Zona and Sean Harkness. While listening to the album for review, our team decided to throw out some of our favorites for the Yuletide Season, and what we ended up with is one enjoyable playlist distilled from the albums of the artists of cabaret and concert. (Look up each album on Spotify - they're good!)
