An Acoustic Christmas

John Tesh has played his way to six music Emmys, two Grammy nominations, three gold records, seven Public Television specials and sold 8 million records.

After more than three decades as an international entertainer, Tesh’s recording and live concert career continues to thrive. This holiday season he showcases his musical chops in John Tesh: an Acoustic Christmas. The special performance features holiday classics along with all new big band arrangements. Whether at the solo piano, with a 12-piece ‘big band’ or an 80 piece orchestra, Tesh’s ability to create a unique journey for concert fans with music and storytelling has taken him from the Red Rocks Amphitheater and the Coliseum in Rome to Carnegie Hall and The Kennedy Center.
