Christmas Performances

Music and festivities can be found all around Utah right now. Several performances in the Salt Lake area are of special note.

The Oak Ridge Boys will bring their Christmas show to Salt Lake City on Nov 30, 7:30 p.m. The Salt Lake Tribune has this article about the show. Here's just one quote: “We’ve become known for our Christmas music,” said Richard Sterban, the quartet’s bass singer. It’s the 23rd consecutive year the Oak Ridge Boys have put on a Christmas tour, said tenor Joe Bonsall, as he promoted this year’s Utah stopover Nov. 30 at Abravanel Hall.

Handel’s "Messiah" will be presented Dec 10, 11, 13, at 7:30 p.m., Grand Theatre, 1575 S. State St., Salt Lake Community College campus. Only this version has a twist: It is a musical program infusing the classic with jazz, R&B and gospel.

Kurt Bestor, a local favorite, will perform Dec 14 at Weber State University and Dec 16-18 at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City. The Tribune has this article about Bestor. Here's a quote: "Despite working throughout the year on musical projects, Bestor is best-known in Utah for his annual Christmas shows. He spends months preparing for them, incorporating some 30 percent to 40 percent of new material every year... This is the 22nd year Bestor will perform his holiday show."

Temple Square in downtown Salt Lake City has music and performances every day during the holiday season. David Archuleta will perform with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra December 16–19, in the Conference Center. See more Temple Square activities.

Here's an extended list of Salt Lake area productions.
