Yuletide Festival combines choirs, musical guests, and ice sculptures

The American Festival Chorus is hosting its inaugural Yuletide Festival this weekend and founder and Music Director Craig Jessop says it will be a celebration of families, friends and Christmas traditions. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Thursday, Jessop said the multi-faceted celebration is more than just music. Yuletide Festival includes ice sculptures in the courtyard of the Fine Arts Center “As people gather to the concert I would encourage them to go through the courtyard and view these beautiful ice sculptures,” Jessop encouraged. “There will be complimentary hot cider and hot chocolate being served by USU Food Services before and after each of the three concerts.” The performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Kent Concert Hall of the USU Chase Fine arts Center. There will also be a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee where people over 65 will be admitted free of charge. Jessop says in addition to the choir, the Yuletide Festival includes the USU Dance Team, the First Presbyterian Church’s Westminster Bell Choir and special musical guests Nathan Osmond of Osmond Second Generation and Jessie Clark Funk. Tickets are available at the Caine School of the Arts box office and at the Ellen Eccles Theatre box office.
