Chase Peterson and Friends
 Chase Petersen is excited to return to the Logan Tabernacle for the third installment of “It’s Christmas Time”.  Chase has had many opportunities over the years to participate in numerous musical events, and now recently has undergone the challenge of directing and producing his own shows while still participating in them. Chase has had the opportunity of working alongside recording artist Alex Boye as a soloist, and Madilyn Paige from NBC’s The Voice. He has also done extra work for BYUtv’s Studio C and PBS documentary Joseph Smith: American Prophet. Chase has done Voice Over work with the Mormon Channel and the LDS Church History Museum as well. He hopes that his shows can uplift and inspire others bringing a little joy into their lives.
