Don’t Miss the Choir’s Summer Extravaganza!
The Pioneer Day Concert 2014, “A Summer Celebration of Song” is coming up fast, July 18 and 19. Mack Wilberg, music director of the Choir and Ryan Murphy, associate music director, will direct the Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square. Tickets for the two performances are distributed but you can still be a part of the concert featuring Broadway and film star Santino Fontana.
Standby seating will be available both Friday and Saturday. Hundreds of standbys are usually seated at Choir concerts and patrons are encouraged to come. The standby line forms at the North Gate of Temple Square at 6 p.m.
The Choir will be broadcasting the concert on Saturday on its website—MoTab.org/PioneerDay—and BYUtv will air the program that night as well. Both are at 8 p.m. Mountain time. (BYUtv will also reair the concert on July 24 at 7 p.m., 10 p.m. and 1 a.m.)
The Pioneer Day Concert has a rich history of including well-known artists in its summer concert. Moviegoers know Fontana as the voice of Prince Hans in the blockbuster Disney film Frozen and Broadway audiences saw him in Cinderella. He joins other pop favorites Lindsey Stirling and Nathan Pacheco, last year’s performers, and the likes of former guests Katherine Jenkins, Donny Osmond and Gladys Knight.
