featuring Sissel Kyrkjbø
Although Sissel Kyrkjebø has been singing since she was 15 and made her European debut the next year, it wasn’t until the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer that American audiences were introduced to her during her magnificent singing of the Olympic’s Opening Anthem. With many CDs and awards, she has teamed up with vocal masters such as Placido Domingo, Celine Dion, Jose Carreras and Josh Groban. But, according to Sissel, singing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square for this Christmas Concert was “a match made in heaven.”
For her first-ever Christmas album released in the U.S., Sissel collaborated with the world famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra. The concert was seen on PBS throughout the United States, and The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Sissel received two Grammy nominations for this release, “Spirit of The Season” for Best Classical Crossover Album as well as Best Engineered Classical Album.
