2014 Christmas Guests are Brought to You by the Letters F-U-N!!!

The wait is over! This year’s annual Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas concert guests have been announced, and you’re in for a major treat. Frozen’s Santino Fontana returns to join forces with world-famous The Muppets® from Sesame Street®. The concerts will take place December 11–14. As an added bonus, the minimum age for this concert event will be lowered to ages 5 and up, rather than the usual 8 and up.

As the Choir’s guest for the 2014 Pioneer Day concert, Fontana used his princely charm to win over the 21,000 guests he entertained each night at the Conference Center. He performed a diverse set, which included songs from West Side Story and Cinderella, as well as a “Happy Medley,” featuring Pharell Williams's hit song “Happy.”

This will be the first collaboration between The Muppets® from Sesame Street® and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The television program Sesame Street® has been entertaining children of all ages since 1969. Make sure to check back each week as we reveal which Muppets® are coming.

“This year’s concert is going to be unlike any other,” claims Ron Jarrett, president of the Choir. “Joining Santino’s talents with those of the Sesame Street Muppets will bring the childlike wonder of Christ into our hearts and remind us of the true meaning of the season.”
