2016 holiday release. This Christmas concert features Broadway star Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Anything Goes, Bonnie and Clyde) and renowned British screen actor Martin Jarvis. In this performance, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square present the story of George Frideric Handel's life in an inspiring celebration of song. The story of Handel's struggle to write his most famous oratorio, Messiah, celebrates freed debtors, charitable giving, rescued children, and the Messiah's mission to save God's children from spiritual death. The music includes some of the most beloved Christmas songs, such as "Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful," "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and "Joy to the World." Guest soloists from the Metropolitan Opera also thrill audiences with their rendition of "For unto Us a Child Is Born," from Handel's Messiah. This performance brings the listener closer to the true meaning of Christmas with a Christ-centered focus and a thrilling display of talent for the whole family to enjoy.
