British Actor Michael York to Narrate Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas ProgramAs if it's not enough to have one show-stopper, David Archuleta, on stage for the annual Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas program, highly acclaimed actor Michael York has been added to narrate the December event. As is the tradition, he will read of the birth of Jesus Christ from the book of Luke in the Bible; he will also share a tender Christmas account, always a highlight of the concert. York, in his first appearance with the Choir, brings 45 years of stage, screen, and recording performance to the Conference Center. 

British-born and educated at Oxford, York is familiar to audiences around the world. Included in his more than 60 screen credits are The Taming of the Shrew, Romeo and Juliet, Cabaret, The Three Musketeers, and Murder on the Orient Express. He is not new to musical theater, having toured the nation as King Arthur in Camelot and starred on Broadway. He has narrated many documentaries and over 90 audio books, including a new audio version of the Bible, The Word of Promise, and has performed concert versions of Shakespeare at the Kennedy Center and the Hollywood Bowl. He has been honored by his home country as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, in France with an Arts et Lettres, and in the U.S. with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 

The live event will be held in Salt Lake City over three successive nights, December 16-19, 2010 and will later be broadcast on PBS and made available on DVD.
