Craig Jessop's Pandemic Playlist On Wednesday's Access Utah

During these times of unrest and uncertainty we’ve been checking in with writers, poets, and musicians. Next time on Access Utah our guest is Craig Jessop, Director of American Festival Chorus and Orchestra and former Director of the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, also former Dean of the USU Caine College of the Arts.

He’ll guide us through his pandemic playlist, including music of Bach, Rachmaninoff and Vaughan Williams, and music performed by Itzhak Perlman, the Moses Hogan Chorale, and Tony Bennett and Barbara Streisand.


Tom Williams worked as a part-time UPR announcer for a few years and joined Utah Public Radio full-time in 1996. He is a proud graduate of Uintah High School in Vernal and Utah State University (B. A. in Liberal Arts and Master of Business Administration.) He grew up in a family that regularly discussed everything from opera to religion to politics. He is interested in just about everything and loves to engage people in conversation, so you could say he has found the perfect job as host “Access Utah.” He and his wife Becky, live in Logan.
