You may have seen him in "Hamilton," and now you can see him with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The Choir announced that Christopher Jackson, a Tony Award-nominated actor, will be the guest artist for the choir's annual Pioneer Day concert. Jackson is best known for his role as George Washington in the award-winning musical "Hamilton." He also recorded an original song written by Lin-Manuel Miranda for the Disney film "Moana" in 2016.

The July 14-15 Pioneer Day concert, "Music for a Summer Evening," will commemorate the arrival of Mormon pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847, and will feature Jackson, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square, at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City.
