Tour Songs Playlist—Mormon Tabernacle Choir

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is currently touring the West Coast, which will include stops in Costa Mesa, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Mountain View, and Rohnert Park, California; Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; and Seattle, Washington.

Music for tour concerts showcases the Choir’s immense repertoire, which includes choral masterworks, hymns, Broadway songs, inspirational music from around the world, American folk hymns and spirituals, and much more. Concertgoers of all ages and tastes in music will no doubt come away feeling inspired and uplifted. Mack Wilberg puts a lot of thought into the setlist of each concert, and each piece of music seems to arrive at the exact moment it should. “When we experience great music, in great spaces, it makes for a great experience—both for the audience and the performer as well,” said Wilberg.

The concerts start with sacred songs of praise or hymns such as “Psalm 48” by Gustav Holst, “Unfold, Ye Portals” by Charles Gounod, and “Hymn of Praise” (“The Old Hundredth”). After intermission, however, the music shifts to include the back-to-back powerhouse songs “¡Ah, el novio no quere dinero!” and “Betelehemu” by Olatunji and Wendell Whalum, which both include choreography, drums, and surprises around each corner—a combination guaranteed to light up the faces of adults and youth alike.

The concerts progress with songs including “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing,” “Battle of Jericho,” “Deep River,” and “Cindy,” before concluding with the signature hymns “Come, Come, Ye Saints” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”
