Christmas Music: The Choir’s Gift for You!

The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square invite you to enjoy our Christmas music—our gift for you! 

Music is a special language used by individuals, friends and family, and communities to express their joy, peace, and hope during Christmas celebrations held annually around the world. Christmas music reminds us at this time of year of heavenly choirs appearing to shepherds watching their flocks, and of angels singing about peace on earth, good will toward men, and announcing the birth of Jesus Christ to the world. For both participants and audiences, Christmas music brings back memories of joyful childhood experiences, families gathered around the Christmas tree, and gift exchanges with dear friends.
