The Grammy award-winning and multiple Emmy award-winning Mormon Tabernacle Choir recently announced the guests who will perform at the 2017 Christmas Concert. Award-winning actress, singer and dancer Sutton Foster and acclaimed English actor Hugh Bonneville will be the featured guest in this event. Under the baton of Mack Wilberg and Ryan Murphy, the annual Christmas concert will take place on December 14, 15, and 16 at the Conference Center on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“Each year there is a new theme for the Christmas concert, which magnifies the strengths of our guest artists,” MoTab president Ron Jarrett said. “With Sutton Foster and Hugh Bonneville headlining the concert, audiences will experience a full-scale production of world-class music, dance, and storytelling with amazing visual effects in the Conference Center.”
Sutton is best known for her Tony award-winning roles Anything Goes and Thoroughly Modern Millie. She stared in 11 Broadway shows including The Drowsy Chaperone, Young Frankenstein, and Shrek the Musical.
“Sutton Foster’s crystal-clear voice and vibrant stage presence will pair wonderfully with the Choir and Orchestra. She will be an absolute delight for audiences,” said music director Mack Wilberg. “We are equally privileged to have the multitalented Hugh Bonneville as a narrator bringing to life a story specially tailored to him about joy and peace at Christmas.”
Best known for his role as Robert, Earl of Grantham in ITV/PBS Masterpiece’s global hit Downton Abbey, Bonneville received a Golden Globe and two Emmy nominations. His many film credits include Notting Hill, Iris, The Monuments Men, and Paddington. He will be the narrator for the Christ Concert.
