It’s easy to underestimate singer Linda Eder. Her range, both vocally and stylistically, is actually very impressive. Her technique and approach are both flawless. Her only fault? She makes it all look much too easy. She is, in short, a singer’s singer.
When she appears today with the Houston Symphony for A Linda Eder Christmas, fans will hear some favorites from her holiday album released in 2000, as well as other seasonal classics. Eder delivers a delicate version of "Silent Night," while "Do You Hear What I Hear" is sweeping and powerful. "O Holy Night," one of her best, is simply majestic. 7:30 p.m. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana.
