The Lower Lights performed its annual Christmas concert in the historic Masonic Temple Auditorium on Dec. 12. The second show will be tonight, Dec. 13.

A gospel folk band consisting of nearly two dozen prominent Utah musicians, such as Mindy Gledhill, Cherie Call, Ryan Shupe and Ryan Tanner, The Lower Lights entertained the audience with Christmas songs from the album "Come Let Us Adore Him." Popular songs from the group's other albums were performed as well. There was a special appearance from Branden Campbell of Neon Trees, who performed on the guitar and other related instruments throughout the show.

The Lower Lights made sure to get the audience in on the fun through sing-along songs and upbeat clapping. Numerous instruments and vocals added a variety of musical talent that never ceased to please those in attendance.

Songs included "Away in a Manger," "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas," "Silver Bells" and many other Christmas songs. Some popular songs also included were "Calling You" and "River of Jordan," among others.

It was a family-friendly event. The Lower Lights' passion for music is evident and made the show even more worthwhile.
