20 Years of Christmas with The Tabernacle Choir on PBS and BYUtv
This December 2021, PBS stations and BYUtv, the family entertainment HD cable TV network, will air 20 Years of Christmas with The Tabernacle Choir, the annual holiday special featuring Tony Award®-winning star Brian Stokes Mitchell.
This unique two-hour retrospective special was taped during the pandemic restrictions of 2020 to replace the live concert special. Brian Stokes Mitchell, with no public announcement and absolutely no fanfare, came back to the Conference Center on Temple Square to remember and relive twenty years of inspiring Choir Christmas concerts with strict COVID protocols in place. It features over 40 guest artists and excerpts from over 60 songs, carols, and stories.
