The Salt Lake City venue would have to be the largest concert hall in the world, (the stage proscenium is about 140 ft wide by 72 ft high) and with a choir of some 375 voices, a 100+ symphony orchestra, 200 dancers and bell ringers and an audience of 21,000 - that's right 21,000 appreciative Christmas concert-goers, this has to be the most spectacular Christmas offering I've seen in years. This is truly a magical feast for the eyes and the ears!
Beautifully directed, you'll soar above the audience, the choir, the orchestra and dancers on extended camera cranes, and with a total of some 11 cameras they capture the true Spirit of Christmas. The quality and clarity of the Technicolorful 16x9 anamorphic picture will astound you, and the 5.1 surround sound will engulf you into the heart of this spectacular venue.
Many of the stunning arrangements are by conductor Mack Wilberg, beautifully played by the orchestra that will send chills up your spine. And just wait until you hear the vast string section - wow! Natalie Cole sings 'It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year' - the heart rendering 'Grown Up Christmas List' by David Foster - 'Caroling, Caroling' - 'The Christmas Song' ('Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire') - 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing' and 'The Holly and the Ivy.Read more ›
The only problem I have is that some of the songs were a bit low in tempo.
All in all excellent; would recommend it.
