Watch: 5 mind-blowing organ performances from the Tabernacle Choir’s Christmas concerts

When he sits down to play in the Conference Center, Tabernacle Choir organist Richard Elliott becomes a madman—but a very lovable one. And his insanely creative organ performances have become a highlight of the Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square’s annual Christmas concerts. His arrangements can be pulled off only with the help of all four limbs—requiring not only the nimblest of fingers but also the deftest of toes.

From “The Twelve Days of Christmas” with the Count from Sesame Street to an epic organ trio with his fellow organists Andrew Unsworth and Clay Christiansen, here are five of our favorite Richard Elliott Christmas concert performances.
