Relive the Christmas Magic with the Muppets® from Sesame Street® and Santino Fontana

Christmas may belong to December but who doesn’t love the songs and celebrations all year long! The newest CD and DVD release from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square—Keep Christmas with You—is filled with the magic and joy of the season. And its star-studded cast is one you will love to watch again:  Broadway leading man Santino Fontana, Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and their friends from Sesame Street®, over 100 dancers, the Bells on Temple Square, the Orchestra at Temple Square and of course, the Choir. 

If you weren’t able to see the live concert, these recordings are a MUST on your Christmas list. And if even if you were lucky enough to be there in person, all the more reason to want to relive the moments. 

This live recording features banter between Big Bird and choir director Mack Wilberg; Abby Cadabby and Rosita, in their own little Choir dresses, singing with the Choir; and Count von Count joining organist Richard Elliott in a one-of-a-kind performance of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”  Other favorites of the concert include “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly,” the traditional reading of Luke 2, the triumphant finale “Angels from the Realms of Glory”; and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” as the encore.

The DVD also includes “Behind the Scenes” bonus features capturing interviews and backstage maneuverings that promise to be favorites. You can find Keep Christmas With You at Deseret Book, Amazon or on the Shop pages at
