KUTV Holiday Pops Concert
December 6, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$15
This year’s KUTV Holiday Pops Concert will feature the Choral Arts Society of Utah, Salt Lake Children’s Choir, and West Valley Symphony of Utah. This amazing line-up of performers will kick-off your holiday season with beloved Christmas favorites.
The Salt Lake Children’s Choir, is regarded as one of the finest ensembles of its kind in the nation. The choir consists of children between the ages of 8 and 15, from the Salt Lake Valley and nearby communities. It emphasizes natural vocal production and works of the immortal masters, as well as outstanding folk and contemporary music from around the world. A prizewinner in international competition, the choir has appeared with many internationally celebrated artists and organizations — including Grant Johannessen, Frederica von Stade, Marvin Hamlisch, Pete Seeger, Kurt Bestor, and on numerous occasions with The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Utah Symphony, with whom it has also recorded. The choir has been featured at several conventions of the American Choral Directors’ Association, and has been heard on Public Radio International and PBS. Its singers are also regularly requested for major sound tracks and promotions, including projects for CBS, NBC, and Walt Disney Productions.
The West Valley Symphony of Utah, well known for their participation in the KUTV Holiday Pops Concert, performs from Utah County north to Logan, and was featured with the Bar-J Wranglers for 5 earlier Holiday Pops Concerts. They’re most recent concert was presented to a packed house at the Utah Cultural Celebrations Center, featuring a program of music and educational dialog about astronomy and space science.
Members of the 100-voice Master Chorale volunteer their time and talents to provide quality performances, many of which benefit schools and organizations providing humanitarian services to the local area, including this benefit concert for the KUTV Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. The concert provides gifts of the season to hundreds of children and senior citizens along the Wasatch Front. This is a wonderful family event for all ages and we will have a special visit from Santa Claus!
