Hugh Bonneville was the guest narrator at this year's annual Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert. “To us from out of town, it’s quite an experience to come into this vast arena, which all at the same time feels like a home,” Bonneville said. “That’s what I think the expression of this concert is all about. It’s about creating an atmosphere that’s both huge in scale but also intimate in content.”

Acclaimed British actor Hugh Bonneville congratulated the Mormon Tabernacle Choir at a press conference on Dec. 15 for the “extraordinary tradition” it has achieved through its annual Christmas concerts.

“The love and the commitment that these people who are volunteering give to this is extraordinary,” Bonneville said. “To know that some 500 or 600 people are coming together for the single purpose of a celebration — a celebration through music and word and dance — it’s a rare experience.”
