This December, Kurt Bestor Brings “Peace on Earth”—His Suite of Beloved Holiday Arrangements—To the Center for the Arts at Kayenta
He’s a household name for most Utahns, but Kurt Bestor is also world-renowned for the multifaceted body of award-winning music he has composed and performed during his prolific career, and this December, Bestor brings his extraordinary voice and sound to Southern Utah audiences with “Peace on Earth,” an intimate concert series that seeks to instill peace into hearts at Christmastime. His holiday songs are beloved for their beauty, richness and uniqueness. Bestor—who performed last year at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta (CFAK)—is excited to return because, as he puts it, “The 200-seat theatre creates a special, familial energy. It’s as if close friends have joined me in my living room to listen to the Christmas arrangements that I hold dear.”
Bestor chose the theme of peace for this year’s concert. “It’s something the world needs a whole lot more of right now,” he says. The team at CFAK is excited to be the chosen place for Southern Utahns and visitors to experience this special holiday concert. Jan Broberg, CFAK Director, is a personal friend of Kurt and knows the kind of experience people have at his concerts. “His music is so beautiful, it just stops you in your tracks,” she says. “We are so lucky to have a musician of Kurt’s caliber come to our theater. There are things you learn about Kurt that you will never see anywhere else. He plays more instruments, shares pieces he’s composed for a smaller venue like ours, and he’s funny! I hope as many people as possible get the opportunity to experience ‘Peace on Earth.’” Tickets are on sale now for $40 until November 30, and $45 starting December 1st.
