COMING DECEMBER 13, 2022, at 8/7C


This December, the beloved annual “Christmas with The Tabernacle Choir” special returns to PBS. Tony® Award-nominated performer Megan Hilty and well-known film and television actor Neal McDonough join the iconic 500-person Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square in a soulful celebration of the season.


McDonough and Hilty, who each share Irish heritage and traditions, join the Choir and Orchestra, trumpeters and bell ringers in delivering a deeply personal program that weaves together well-known holiday tunes, classic Christmas carols and hymns with some traditional Irish musical numbers.

The beloved annual “Christmas with The Tabernacle Choir” marks the first return of the in-person concert special since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Following a twenty-year long tradition, it was recorded over three nights in December 2021 in Salt Lake City’s Conference Center located at Temple Square. 


The longstanding tradition, which has welcomed some of the most well-known singers and performers from Broadway, music, film and television, has been the No. 1 primetime holiday program on PBS for 17 years since it first aired in 2004.
