What Type of Songs Does the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Perform on Tour?

When the Mormon Tabernacle Choir hits the road, it’s a BIG deal! To move the Choir, Orchestra, and their equipment from place to place, it takes 11 buses, 3 airplanes, and 4 trucks. While many people are aware of “America’s Choir,” many are also in the dark as to what the Choir is all about. The 360-member, all-volunteer Choir dates back to 1847 and has since performed for numerous U.S. Presidents and World’s Fairs and toured Europe and the Middle East. The world-renowned Choir holds the record for the longest-running broadcast, Music and the Spoken Word, which began in 1929.

If you’ve never experienced the Choir live, now is the time. The Choir is headed to the East Coast of the United States this summer and will make stops in Bethesda, New York City, Saratoga Springs, Bethel Woods, and Boston from June 24 through July 7, 2015. Find ticket and general tour information.

Here are 10 videos of songs that have been performed on recent tours. We hope you'll join us this summer on the Atlantic Coast Tour to hear what songs we have lined up. The Choir and Orchestra will be joined by guest soloist and YouTube sensation Alex Boyé. You don't want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime event!!!
