The world’s best figure skaters will be back at the Langley Events Centre this holiday season for the 2013 Holiday Festival on Ice on December 6 at 7:00 PM (PST) in Langley, BC. This year’s show will feature Canadian jazz singer Holly Cole, adding to the already star studded line up of figure skaters which includes Elvis Stojko (two-time Olympic medalist), Kurt Browning (four-time World Champion) and Joannie Rochette (Olympic Bronze medalist), to name a few.
“We are extremely excited to bring back these skaters and add the new element of incorporating a live performance as a part of the event,” LEC Director of Business Development Jared Harman noted that Cole’s presence will give the evening a very different feel from what fans experienced last year.
Cole, who will be performing Christmas music while the skating stars perform on the ice, has been a mainstay in the Canadian music industry for the last two decades. She recently performed to sold out crowds for three straight nights at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. During that event, Cole was presented as the 15th winner of the Ella Fitzgerald Award which is given to a jazz singer of significant talent who has had a major impact and influence in the international scene. She joins the likes of Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett, Sade and Diana Krall as some of the past winners of the award. Cole and Krall are the only two Canadian Artists to ever receive this prestigious honour.
With such a star-studded lineup, this event has drawn the attention of CBC Television who will be at the Langley Events Centre to record the night’s festivities and will be airing the event during the Holiday Season.
