In the last five years a new Cache Valley holiday tradition has been created: “Christmas at the Ellen Eccles Theatre.” The American Festival Chorus and Orchestra will once again present a delightful Christmas concert under the direction of Craig Jessop, dean of the Caine College of the Arts at Utah State University.
This year’s concerts will be held Friday, December 6 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, December 7 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Jessop said this year’s Christmas concerts will feature Alyson Cambridge from Baltimore, Maryland who has sung on the leading stages, including the Metropolitan Opera and the Washington National Opera.
“It’s a wonderful, elegant evening,” Jessop says.
Jessop says the Westminster Bell Choir will also be part of the concert.
