Nathan Gunn Will Be Caroling With the Mormons in December

"Opera singer Nathan Gunn and actress Jane Seymour will be celebrating Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir this year. Gunn and Seymour were announced Thursday as guest stars of the choir’s annual Christmas Concerts, set for Dec. 15-18 in the LDS Conference Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Choir president Mac Christensen and music director Mack Wilberg made the announcement Thursday, as recent tradition dictates, on KSL radio’s The Doug Wright Show."Gunn, interviewed by Wright by phone from Houston, said he was thrilled to perform with 'the most famous choir on the planet.' It’s not Gunn’s first time with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. He performed in 1998 in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. 'It was shocking,' he said of the experience. 'I wasn’t prepared for the amazing warmth coming from behind me.'....The concerts are set for 8 p.m. on Dec. 15-17, and 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 18 (a live broadcast of "Music and the Spoken Word" with mini-concert to follow), in the 21,000-seat LDS Conference Center. The 84,000 tickets are free, and will be distributed by random drawing. Registration for the ticket drawing starts this Saturday at 12:01 a.m. and runs through Oct. 17.
