Access Music & the Spoken Word On-Demand

Did you know that The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square’s most recent weekly Music & the Spoken Word broadcast is available for on-demand online viewing after its initial airing? With people around the globe looking for uplift and comfort during these troubled times, the broadcast connects people of all languages and all faiths with musical expressions of faith that can soothe and touch each heart. 

Every Sunday after the 9:30 a.m. (mountain time) airing of the broadcast, that week’s episode is immediately archived for on-demand viewing. This means that audiences anywhere in the world can get the uplift they are seeking at a time convenient for them any day of the week, any time of the day or night. 

Here is how you can find the most recent episode of Music & the Spoken Word:

  • On the Choir’s Facebook Page: On the menu below the Choir’s name, click on “More,” then “Videos” and scroll down to “All Videos” to click on the episode.

  • On the Choir’s Website: On the drop-down menu under the Music & the Spoken Word click on either “Current Episode” or Past Episodes" to find the episode you want to watch. On each website page you will find the episode video, a list of music repertoire performed, and the text of the Spoken Word.

  • On Amazon Alexa: Just say “Alexa, play Music & the Spoken Word” for the latest episode.

As a reminder, during this unique time we are re-airing previously recorded broadcasts. In 2020, when the worldwide pandemic restricted all live performances, the weekly broadcasts of Music & the Spoken Word continued without a pause by using the Choir’s vast digital recording library. Since December 2020, every week new Spoken Word messages have been added to these re-aired broadcasts—each Spoken Word written for the unique experiences we are facing together in the world.

We have changed our process so that broadcasts are immediately available. And audiences have responded!  Viewership on YouTube alone increased many times over compared to before COVID. 

“Although we are grateful for the rich archive of The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square recordings, we hopefully look forward to the time when we will be able to perform live for our weekly broadcasts and concerts in front of thousands,” remarked Choir president Ron Jarrett. “Music is the way the Choir and Orchestra members reach out to people around the world to be able to communicate with them from the heart.” 

Since 1929, nearly the lifetime of radio, Music & the Spoken Word has continuously been broadcast each week. Today, the broadcast is available to audiences throughout the world on radio, television, cable, social media channels, and the internet.
