This year’s KUTV Holiday Pops Concert with music director Sterling Poulson, will feature the 100-voice Choral Arts Society of Utah, and the West Valley Symphony of Utah kicking off your holiday season with beloved Christmas favorites the whole family will enjoy!
Our featured Guest Artist this year is Jason Lyle Black. “The Backwards Piano Man®”, is an award-winning pianist, composer, entertainer, and speaker, known for his performance on the Ellen Show and for his 30 million music video views worldwide. Black entered the music industry in 2004 with a self-produced album of original music, Flood of Keys. Five years later, he made his debut on YouTube and began performing and speaking to business and community audiences. In 2015, Black created a music video of Disney’s Frozen that went on to be featured by Huffington Post, Good Morning America, and other national news outlets. This video was followed by a music video of Pixar’s UP that also reached millions worldwide. The following year, Black released Piano Preludes, an album of original music, with label Stone Angel Music and producer Paul Cardall, which debuted at #1 on iTunes and #2 on the Billboard music charts. Critics called Piano Preludes “masterful…overflowing with grace, reverence, and heart.”
The West Valley Symphony of Utah, with music director Donny Gilbert, is well known for their participation in the KUTV Holiday Pops Concert. The 70-piece orchestra performs 5-6 concerts each year generally at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center. The orchestra will perform at the Larry H. & Gail Miller Christmas Carole Sing-a-long at the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, December 17, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. The event is free to the public
Members of the 100-voice Choral Arts Society of Utah 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 2News Salvation Army Angel Tree Program.

This is a wonderful family event for all ages and we will have a special visit from Santa Claus!
