The holiday concert, which was filmed in December 2018, will premiere on PBS in a 60-minute version December 16 at 9 PM ET. A 90-minute version will air on the family entertainment network BYUtv December 19 at 7 PM and 10 PM.
“There were exactly three programs I watched on TV growing up: The Tabernacle Choir holiday specials, Miss America, and the Tony Awards,” said Chenoweth in a statement. “This Christmas concert is part of my history, part of my DNA, and it was a bucket list item of mine for a long time, so I am very honored and grateful for this experience. It is music and professionalism at the highest level—it could be a Broadway show. I have been so fortunate to perform in a lot of amazing places, but this is a Top 3 moment for me in my career and something I will never forget.”
Chenoweth, who is back on Broadway in a limited concert engagement of For the Girls at the Nederlander Theatre, joins a 600-person strong cast composed of The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, Orchestra at Temple Square, and Bells on Temple Square for a night of Christmas celebration through music, dance, and storytelling. Viewers will enjoy a mix of classic Christmas carols, Broadway, pop, country, classical, and Christian/gospel.
In addition to the airings on PBS and BYUtv, the special is available for purchase as a DVD or CD titled Angels Among Us. For more information, click here.
