Following last year’s popular “Witnesses of Christmas” musical Christmas concert produced by the Europe Area of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the questions started rolling in — “How about featuring more European performers?” “How about some diversity in languages?” and “How are you going to top that next year?”
Well, “next year” is now, with the “Witnesses of Christmas: Symbols of Christ” production set to answer those questions and more in celebrating the birth of the Savior.
Produced by the Europe Central and Europe North areas, the 2022 Christmas concert has a little bit of everything, beginning with 12 popular European musical artists featured in 10 performances.
But it is more than just music, with narration explaining how traditional Christmas symbols — stars, bells, candles, trees and more — are tied to Christ; video clips portraying the birth, life and teachings of the Savior; and animated 3D segments depicting scenes from Charles Dickens’ well-known novel “A Christmas Carol.”
Filmed in English and presented in 31 languages, the concert will first air Sunday, Dec. 11, at 6 p.m. Central European Time (in the United States — noon Eastern, 11 a.m. Central, 10 a.m. Mountain and 9 a.m. Pacific) and then be available on various official Church channels through the middle of next month.
