Event Description

Family, friends, and associates from around the world are invited to join in a celebration of President Russell M. Nelson’s 95th birthday on Friday, September 6, at 8:00 p.m. mountain daylight time at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City.

Latter-day Saint performing artists Jenny Oaks Baker & Family Four, GENTRI, The Bonner Family, Nathan Pacheco, and Donny Osmond will join The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square for the evening celebration on Friday, September 6, 2019.

Grammy-nominated violinist Jenny Oaks Baker and her four children—three on string instruments and one on piano—compose Jenny Oaks Baker & Family Four, with performances all over the world to their credit.

The Bonner Family consists of eight Bonner siblings and their parents, all talented vocalists, who perform and record together.

GENTRI, The Gentlemen Trio, comprises three tenors: Brad Robins, Casey Elliott, and Bradley Quinn Lever. Their three-part harmonies have been pleasing audiences since 2014.

Nathan Pacheco is a classically trained tenor who has made a name for himself as a crossover artist, performing in both the United States and abroad. He has a number of CD releases to his credit.

Donny Osmond is a versatile singer, dancer, actor, recording producer, and TV star. He has a string of gold records and is completing an 11-year run of a show with his sister, Marie, to sold-out crowds nightly.

The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square are musical ambassadors for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Their weekly broadcast of Music & the Spoken Word is celebrating 90 years of continuous broadcasting.

The birthday celebration will share insights into the life, ministry, and service of President Nelson. Videos will focus on how his career, family, and ministry have shaped who he is as a special witness of Jesus Christ. Elder S. Gifford Nielsen of the Seventy, a former sportscaster and professional football quarterback, and Ruth Todd, a former television news anchor, will emcee the concert celebration.
