Student singers showcased
Some of Nanaimo’s most talented young performers share the stage for A Cool Yule Christmas concert.
Jayden Holman, Julie Lennert and Mikaila Tombe will be accompanied by a five-piece band, led by Nico Rhodes and featuring bassist Marisha Devoin and trumpet player Marty Shepard, performing festive hits from all musical genres.
Singer-actor Joëlle Rabu will host the evening, which also features the award-winning singer-songwriter Alexandria Maillot.

While Maillot records and performs in Vancouver, she also pursues a career in film and television, earning her first role in Little Red Riding Hood, a movie produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s company.
A Cool Yule Christmas concert is open to the whole family and takes place Monday (Dec. 12) at Headliners, next to Mrs. Riches on Fraser Street. Doors open at 7 p.m.
