Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Air date: Wed., Dec. 24, 8:00 pm
Featuring Deborah Voigt and John Rhys-Davies
Soprano Deborah Voigt and acclaimed British actor and voice artist John Rhys-Davies join the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square in Salt lake City, Utah for a concert of holiday favorites. Among the highlights are Voigt’s performances of the English carol “The Holly and the Ivy” and the light-hearted “The Twelve Days After Christmas” with the choir and orchestra.
The program also includes two festive Russian pieces, with dancers joining the choir and orchestra for excerpts from Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Polonaise” from Christmas Eve and “Dance of the Tumblers” from Tchaikovsky’s The Snow Maiden.
Another highlight is Rhys-Davies’ dramatization of “A Dickens Christmas,” a vignette featuring him as the Ghost of Christmas Present.
