This concert is part of a seven-city Christmas tour of the Northeast and Midwest, celebrating Mammana’s 2022 Christmas EP, also titled “In the Christmas City.” The EP pays homage to the Christmas season in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, lovingly nicknamed “the Christmas City,” and features a collection of reimagined Christmas favorites and original compositions. Corinne will be traveling with her regular pianist, the extraordinary Patrick Kerssen, and joined by talented musicians Ed Croft on bass and Devin Kelly on drums.

The notable online magazine Talkin’ Broadway captures the essence of Mammana’s artistry, stating,

“Some vocalists pull a listener in immediately, right from the first phrase. With her gorgeous voice, knowing approach to lyrics to establish intimacy, and her own sensitive arrangements, Corinne Mammana is that kind of enthralling artist on her EP. One can almost see those sights of the season she sings about with tender loving attention and glowing appreciation in ‘Christmas Time Is Here’ and the cozy conversation-like self-penned title song of ‘In the Christmas City.’”

Get ready to enjoy the sights and sounds of the season, as Mammana’s tender and appreciative renditions transport you to the heart of the Christmas spirit.
