The Mormon Tabernacle Choir

 

The world-renowned Salt Lake Mormon Tabernacle Choir is a 325-voice group that began shortly after the Latter-day Saint pioneers first arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847.

The Tabernacle Choir is best known for its Sunday radio broadcast in the United States, Music and the Spoken Word, which originates from Temple Square in Salt Lake City. This program has been a radio tradition in America since 1929 and is carried on scores of television stations.

The choir is also known for its recordings, among them a Grammy award-winning rendition of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." The choir has recorded with some of the world's great orchestras, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra.  The choir has released more than 150 albums

Concert tours over the years have taken the choir around the world where choir members have sung in the great concert halls of Europe, Mexico, Brazil, Canada, Japan, Australia, Israel, Russia, and the United States. The choir has also performed for several United States presidents, both at inaugural ceremonies and in the White House.

Tabernacle Choir Rehearsals are held on Thursdays beginning at 8 pm and the Tabernacle Choir Network Broadcast is held on Sundays at 9:30 am (guests must be seated by 9:15 am).
