"A Kurt Bestor Christmas" celebrates its 25th season this year, and Bestor will be at Abravanel Hall, Dec. 13 through 15.
One of the special guest performers joining Bestor will be Grammy-nominated violinist Jenny Oaks Baker.
Another guest artist who will join Bestor and Baker will be announced next month.
It's rare to find a musician that is incredibly artistic, impeccably prepared, naturally beautiful and actually pleasant to work with. Jenny is all of these things. I never tire of hearing my musical arrangements played by her because they always exceed my already high expectations," said Bestor in a press release. "Onstage, Jenny is always captivating and delivers knockout performances each and every night. There is no one I'd rather have help me celebrate my 25 years of Christmas concerts than Jenny. And since my shows are ’Made in Utah,’ it seemed only right that a fellow Utahn, who has made it big, should come back and play for the home crowd."
Baker's latest CD is "Noel: Carols of Christmas Past."
