    Been on vacation for the past week, so we missed attending the concert. We only draw-out tickets about every fourth or fifth year (on avg). Wish we could have been there this year!

    We would TRULY love to see them bring in OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN as the guest vocalist one of these next few years!!! She's phenomenally amazing, and her Christmas album "Christmas Wish" is our all-time favorite Christmas album!!!!!! Her voice and stage presence would be SO PERFECT for this Mormon Christmas Concert. Are you listening, Brother Wilberg?!?! 8^)

    It is difficult to get tickets but always worth it. I don't get them every year that I apply either, which is disappointing but gives someone else a chance to see it. The concert is so magnificent and inspiring. We went Saturday night. Every bit of it was perfect! Thanks MTC, OTC, Jane, Nathan, dancers, and all the people behind the scenes and security at the Conference Center. It was all designed to make for a wonderful night. The only thing I would change is to start it at 7:30 like it has been in years past.

    I worked on or around Temple square for 20 years and rarely missed a Christmas concert. The lights, the music. cold sometimes snowy weather. and lots of friendly faces.aaaaah those were the best days of my life. It was truly magical.
    Now I live on the other side of the world in a very Hot climate called the Philippines. very few Christmas presents among some of the poorest people in the world. I have played Santa Clause for the last four years. It is hart breaking when time after time children ask me for food or a nice bed pad to sleep on.
    I give them a little candy and some words of hope and encourage them to go to school and get an education. These kids are some of the sweetest of Gods creation. I do what I can helping pay for missions,High school and Collage costs. It is a new kinda Christmas with lots of love to go around but its a bitter sweet experience.

    That is sad We wear Blue. This was the first time I tried to get tickets and then got them. I heard many family members try to get tickets if that will help you. I sure hope you get tickets next year. Some people were standing on Temple Square asking for extra tickets. Also I think there are people who don't show up and if you go to the Conference Center you have a good chance of getting tickets.

    I have put in for tickets for the past 5 years and have never recieived any.
    I wonder how some seem to get them every year. I really wonder if it is random selection. There should be a way that everyone could get a chance to go and experience the music.

    This was wonderful last night. Words cannot express how fantastic the whole concert was. I was in awe and everything was done professionally. Thank you so much for everyone who had a part in this.

    We loved the concert last night. The songs and orations were wonderful.

    This has become the most anticipated family tradition on my wife's side of the family. With her dad being a General Authority, we're able to take our entire family each year and sit together with her siblings and their families.

    It's so wonderful to not only hear the greatest choir in the world, but to enjoy the evening with those we love.

    And hats off to those who do such a terrific job decorating the Conference Center.

    Three of my sisters and our daughter also loved the performance. My other sister saw it thursday night and remarked how good the performance was.

    All past Christmas performances have also clearly demonstrated Mack Wilberg's musical genius. We look forward to viewing our VCR taping of the Sunday morning condensed version since we will be in church 9:00 AM until Noon.

    We were also there last night. Great performances all the way around. Thanks to everyone involved. It really is a great show full of the Christmas spirit.

    Leave your house early because UDOT isn't making it easy on anybody to get there!

    We attended last nights concert and was thrilled with Mr. Gunn's voice. What a beautiful and captivating voice he has. The music was wonderful, the stories by by Ms Seymour were wonderful with her beautiful voice and accent and the dancer's were again wonderful this year. The music by the choir seemed special this year and so very good. Good crowd on hand and were very gracious with their appreciation for all that happened. I loved the special effects of the snow falling. As per usual Mack Wilberg came through like the professional he is. Congratulations Choir, you did it again!
