20 Years of Christmas with The Tabernacle Choir DVD: A Must Have!

If you buy one thing this Christmas it should be the DVD 20 Years of Christmas with The Tabernacle Choir!  It’s a perfect gift and it needs to be on your shelf of favorites! It’s more than one season’s classic performance: it’s two decades of Christmas with The Tabernacle Choir with the dancing, singing, and stories all in one place. The best part is that you can enjoy the show at your leisure and, no question, you will want to watch it again and again and again.

The program features acclaimed Broadway star and Tony Award®-winner Brian Stokes Mitchell in a review of the high points of Christmas concerts with the Choir and Orchestra, 40 of its world-famous guest artists, and excerpts from more than 60 songs, carols, and Christmas stories. It’s as if you are in the Conference Center and listening to the walls talk of memorable moments gone by. But they are on this special DVD and just waiting to be watched and enjoyed.

You will delight in the classics like  “Hallelujah” from Messiah and the fun of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” You will be moved by the traditional concert ending of “Angels from the Realms of Glory” with over a dozen guest artists and “Joy to the World,” “Carol of the Drums (The Little Drummer Boy),” and “In the Bleak Midwinter.” You will feel like there are, indeed, “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” and you’ll want to dance to Richard Elliott’s dramatic organ solo “Trepak” from Nutcracker Suite. And then there are the Muppets® from Sesame Street®, the newscasters with their accounts of World War I and II, the story of Charles Dickens and another about the Choir’s beginning in Wales. 

If that isn’t enough, there are tender moments of reflection with Mack Wilberg and Stokes Mitchell at the piano; a socially-distanced Orchestra at Temple Square with Stokes performing “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly” with the Choir joining in via “selfie” videos compiled to look like the stars in the hosts of heaven; and children, lots of children, reminding us of good times with the Choir and Orchestra at Christmas.

Get copies for yourself and your friends here before they run out!

You will also enjoy streaming or purchasing the Choir and Orchestra’s CD titled Christmas Best and a beautiful, illustrated compilation book, Keepsake Christmas Stories, with favorites from past performances.
