Music and theater are important parts of the holidays. And we’re appreciating the arts even more now that we’re returning to the theater and concert hall during the pandemic. Today we’re going to talk to several artists and preview several productions coming up this season.

We’ll talk with Richie Call and Paul Mitri from the USU Theater Department and Lyric Repertory Theater; musician Kurt Bestor; Craig Jessop from the American Festival Chorus and Orchestra and Jamey Ray from the vocal group Voctave; and Heidi Kesler, representing the a capella group Voice Male.
