Singer Nathan Pacheco will be the featured guest artist at this year's annual Christmas concert on Saturday, Dec. 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the BYU-Idaho Center in Rexburg.
"A BYU-Idaho Christmas" will feature about 300 Brigham Young University-Idaho students, including the BYU-Idaho Men's Choir, Women's Choir, University Choir, Vocal Union, Rixstix percussion group, a bell choir, dancers, and other students from the College of Performing and Visual Arts.
Pacheco performed in July with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in its annual Pioneer Commemoration Concert. A graduate of Brigham Young University, this classical/crossover singer was a featured vocalist during the 2009 tour for "Yanni Voices." The PBS special "Introducing Nathan Pacheco" began airing on PBS stations throughout the United States last year.
Tickets for this Center Stage performance are $8 for the general public and $4 for BYU-Idaho students. Tickets are available online at www.byui.edu/tickets or on school days from the Kimball Ticket Office at (208) 496-3170.
