Christmas Concert to Air on PBS

The Church website reports that PBS plans to air a Christmas Concert with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra. If you've never seen the choir and orchestra perform, it is a very enjoyable evening's entertainment, which I would heartily recommend:

Christmas Concert to Air on PBS

Members and friends across the United States and Canada who were unable to attend the Christmas concerts with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square this year can still catch a Christmas performance by the choir. A Christmas special featuring the group in its 2004 Christmas concert will be broadcast on PBS twice before the Christmas holiday.

Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square is in its second year as a PBS Christmas special. The special features four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald and veteran movie and television star Peter Graves. The 2004 Christmas concert will air Wednesday, December 21, and Saturday, December 24, at 9:00 p.m. eastern and Pacific time and 8:00 p.m. mountain and central time. Those wishing to watch the special should check local listings to confirm the exact time for their area.

With the airing of this TV special and through other events, the Tabernacle Choir is becoming more and more well-known and loved throughout the world, says Scott Barrick, general manager of the choir. “The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is now becoming a Christmas institution and people are beginning again to associate the choir with all of their memories of Christmas,” he says. “Our annual concerts are seen all around the world.
It appears this is a rebroadcast of 2004's concert, not a live performance of the 2005 concert.
