Event Description

Multi award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter, pianist and CBC Music national radio host Laila Biali has headlined festivals and venues spanning five continents from New York City’s Carnegie Hall to Beijing’s National Centre for the Performing Arts. In 2019, her eponymous release won a Juno for “Vocal Jazz Album of the Year,” and her 2020 Juno-nominated album, Out of Dust, received rave reviews. Her signature sound transcends genre as she “masterfully mixes jazz and pop, bringing virtuosity and unpredictability to songs that are concise and catchy” (Washington Post).

Following a triumphant sold-out premiere at Toronto's Koerner Hall in December 2022, Biali now debuts Wintersongs & Holiday Classics. Featuring fellow Juno winner and Grammy nominated saxophonist/flautist, Jane Bunnett, and first violinist Rebekah Wolkstein (from Toronto’s Venuti String Quartet) leading a local string trio, experience winter-inspired original music alongside thrilling arrangements of beloved secular and sacred classics – an enchanted world of snow-swept landscapes, twinkling lights, and the magic of the holiday season. Ben Wittman drums, Dan Fortin bass.
