Concert Celebrates a Legacy of Choral Music!
The public is invited to a free concert by The Tabernacle Choir, Orchestra at Temple Square, and Bells on Temple Square with the Gabriel Herald Trumpet Ensemble on March 7, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. This specially prepared concert celebrates the legacy of choral music and is held in conjunction with the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) Western Region Conference being held in Salt Lake City the first week in March. No tickets are required, and admission will be open to all those eight years and older.
The program will feature music from a wide variety of genres and includes carols, two different choral “Alleluias,” and two recent Latter-day anthems—Robert Cundick’s “And What Is It We Shall Hope For,” from The Redeemer, and Mack Wilberg’s “Tree of Life.” In addition to African-American spirituals, the Choir will present music from around the world, including the audience-favorite Nigerian “Betelehemu,” followed by two American folk hymns, “Oh, Watch the Stars,” and “Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing.” The program ends with the famous and much loved “Hallelujah” Chorus from Handel’s Messiah.
This will be a concert you won’t want to miss! Plan now to join us!
Reserved seating is provided for ACDA conference participants, but the public is welcome as well.
Access to Temple Square and the Salt Lake Tabernacle will be through the west gates with limited access through the south gate.
