Luz de Las Naciones

Performers dance and perform for the annual Latino Christmas concert. Titled Luz de las Naciones: Venid adoremos (Light of the Nations: Come Let Us Adore Him), the Spanish-language event celebrated Christmas through the music and dance of the Americas.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is proud to present Luz de las Naciones, a cherished annual celebration of Latin American culture. This extraordinary event takes place in the iconic Conference Center nestled in the heart of Salt Lake City, Utah, and goes beyond being a mere celebration of Latin American culture. It stands as a tribute to the unifying strength found in coming together through Christ. Luz de las Naciones offers an immersive experience that knows no borders, embracing and celebrating culture and diversity in a unique way.

With a rich history spanning over two decades, Luz de las Naciones features a dedicated cast of more than 1,000 volunteer musical artists. Adorned in traditional attire that speaks to the diverse regions they represent, these performers share the soulful rhythms, harmonious melodies, and dynamic dances of more than a dozen Latin American countries.

The heart and soul of Luz de las Naciones lies in its ability to unite people and is a testament to the power of music and dance to bridge cultural gaps and celebrate the shared human experience and love of Jesus Christ.

Luz de las Naciones invites you to join a global family in embracing the beauty of diversity and the bonds that tie us all together.
