The fifth BYU-Idaho Christmas concert will be held on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the BYU-Idaho Center.

This year, the music group Time for Three will be performing with the BYU-I Symphony Orchestra, Concert Choir, Men’s Choir, Women’s Choir, Vocal Union and other students from the College of Performing and Visual Arts, according to the Center Stage Web page.

“The thing I’m most excited about is being able to perform with Time for Three,” said Bryce Boydston, a violinist playing in the orchestra and a sophomore studying music education. “The Christmas concert is one of my favorite times of the year that the orchestra gets to play with a famous group.”

Time for Three has recently been on Dancing with the Stars, has played in Carnegie Hall and has made appearances with several other groups and has been featured on CNN for their music, according to Time for Three’s website.

Jeri Urban, a flautist in the orchestra and a senior studying music, said she had a friend who went to a Time for Three concert and loved it, which made Urban more excited to play alongside the Time for Three group.

“They really give a new life to music that BYU needs to hear,” said Brandon Merit, a senior studying math education.

Urban said she is looking forward to performing with them.

“I love hearing a superior strong chamber group, but I’ve never played with one, so it will be an excitng experience,” Urban said.
Tickets on the main floor cost $6 for students and $12 for the public, according to the Center Stage Web page. Tickets are half price on the mezzanine level.

“I’m really looking forward to the concert,” Merit said. “It’s going to be a great start to the Christmas season.”
