Up Close with Martin Jarvis

When guest artists come to perform with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square, their schedules are tight and focused. Often, the only time fans get a glimpse of the artist's personality is during the Friday morning press conference and the few moments on stage between songs or narrations.

This year, we got up close and personal with the guest artists and asked them get-to-know-you questions, such as “What is the best Christmas present you’ve ever received?” “Favorite Christmas tradition?” “What was your favorite acting role?” or “Do you play any instruments?”

Actor Martin Jarvis, whose talents include narration and voice-overs, offered so many great answers that we split his interview into two videos. In the videos, he offers insight into his favorite musicians and how he met his wife, and he even does a Michael Caine impression.

Jarvis is interviewed by Mormon Tabernacle Choir member Ali Barton. Watch these insightful videos to learn more about our 2015 Christmas concert narrator.
