Alfie Boe is the Best

Don't miss the great Alfie Boe on Music and the Spoken Word this Sunday.  Alfie is performing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir this week in multiple concerts with news journalist Tom Brokaw also on tap.  While the annual Christmas concerts are not televised, a mini-version of them is included on the program, Music and the Spoken Word.  It airs on BYU-TV as well as the RCC channels and airs multiple times during Sunday and the days following.

Known for playing Jean Valjean in Les Miserables and Rudolfo in various La Boheme productions including Broadway for which he won a Tony Award, Boe is simply a sensational talent for our times.  He has a huge range, far beyond the normal tenor.  Once considered an opera star and classical performer, the gorgeous Boe bills himself now as a singer, a storyteller of songs, and tell stories he does and in multiple genres.  He sings it all -- rock, country, folk, blues, pop, gospel, and, of course, classical and opera which he still loves.

Catch Alfie at Deseret Book on Friday evening as well where he will also sing.
