Storied singer-songwriters to co-headline Christmas show at Cole

These storied performers will not only perform their own songs, but they will also include Christmas classics in the show to kick off the month of December.

“Both performers have remarkable musical histories, and we’re very excited to have them taking part in our concert series this season,” said Cole Auditorium Director Joey Bennett.

Both Livingston and Tom are consummate entertainers who have had long and varied careers in the music industry. Chapin has won three Grammy Awards, while Taylor has written multiple songs that have cracked the Billboard Top 40 charts. Both have even hosted nationally broadcast television shows.

Livingston Taylor is a brother of five-time Grammy Award winner James Taylor, and one of Tom Chapin’s siblings was the late Harry Chapin, who penned the No. 1 single, “Cats in the Cradle.”

“This performance at the Cole promises to be a special event,” said Bennett.

Additional information about Livingston and Taylor, including video footage of their prior performances, may be found under the Cole Auditorium tag on RCC’s website, www.richmondcc.edu. The playbill for the Dec. 4 show will also be posted on the site prior to the event.

Tickets to the individual performance are on sale now for $35. Prorated season tickets are also available, which will grant access to the four remaining shows in the DeWitt Performing Arts Series. Other acts still to come this year include a piano battle, “Rhythm of the Dance” St. Patrick’s Day themed performance, and a concert by Nashville hit-maker Collin Raye.
