Megan Hilty Featured in 19th Annual Christmas With The Tabernacle Choir
The Tony-nominated actor and singer joins the Christmas tradition, airing this December.
The 19th annual Christmas With The Tabernacle Choir television special, airing on PBS and BYUtv, will feature Tony nominee Megan Hilty (Smash, Wicked) and television and film actor Neal McDonough (Band of Brothers, Captain America: The First Avenger).
In this year's Christmas With The Tabernacle Choir special, Hilty joins the Choir, Orchestra, trumpeters and bell ringers in performing well-known holiday tunes, classic Christmas carols, and hymns. Traditional Irish musical numbers and elements are woven throughout the program in honor of Hilty's and McDonough's shared heritage. As the narrator of the evening, McDonough reflects on the role that family, heritage and traditions play at this time of year.
Following a 20-year tradition, this year's Christmas With the Tabernacle Choir special was recorded over three nights in December 2021 in Salt Lake City's Conference Center located at Temple Square. The 60-minute program, presented by GBH, will premiere on Tuesday, December 13, at 8pm ET on PBS, PBS.org, and the PBS Video app; and on Sunday, December 18, at 8pm ET on BYUtv, BYUtv.org, and the BYUtv app.
