Kurt Bestor

Idaho State University's "A Season of Note" will present "A Kurt Bestor Christmas" at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 18, in the Stephens Performing Art Center's Jensen Grand Concert Hall.

From the magical, starry stage to the featured musicians, from invited guests and Bestor's own playing, conducting and emceeing the show, to the arrangements that add such texture and layers to Christmas songs, there is nothing like a Kurt Bestor Christmas.

Bestor has performed sold-out Christmas shows for 24 years, as he is best known for his innovative interpretation of season carols found in his popular five-CD boxed set "The Complete Kurt Bestor Christmas."
