Edward Reichel praised the American Festival Chorus as one of the Top 15 Concerts of 2012.
American Festival Chorus – Craig Jessop is without doubt one of the most perceptive choral conductors today. During his tenure as music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir he brought back the richness of sound that characterized the ensemble during its golden age. And as music director of Logan’s American Festival Chorus Jessop took a small regional choir and turned it into one of Utah’s most respected vocal ensembles. Their performance of J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion last August was a study in subtlety and nuance and powerful for its emotional expressiveness.
