The City Springs vacation is a magical time of year, and what better way to kick it off than with a tribute to “The King” of “The Christmas Song,” Nat King Cole. Nat King Cole Christmas is a festive holiday concert celebrating one of America’s most beloved musical legends.

This program will feature some of the greatest songs ever written, performed by a three-time GRAMMY® Award-led all-star lineup
musical director and drummer, Terri Lyne Carrington. Performances at the Byers Theater will feature special guest singers Lisa Fischer, Tony Lindsay and Chris Walker; tap dance icon and singer Jared Grimes; and musicians Christian Sands on piano, Ben Williams on bass and Dan Wilson on guitar. Collectively, this group holds 14 GRAMMY Awards, three Latin GRAMMY Awards and 21 GRAMMY nominations.

“We are delighted to bring such a talented team to Sandy Springs,” said Mayor Rusty Paul. “Nat King Cole is the quintessential holiday artist and we are honored to celebrate him on our stage. As we head into the holiday season, we look forward to continuing established traditions and starting new ones right here in Sandy Springs. From famed producer Nat King Cole to 100 Centennial Concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center, this tribute to Cole’s legacy is both a sound and visual experience celebrating him as an inspiring icon.
