Don’t Miss Your Chance to Sing with The Tabernacle Choir!

Don’t miss your chance to apply for an audition to become a member of The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square singing and performing the great music of the world. This once-a-year online audition application period ends Monday, August 15, 2022.  All applications must be submitted by midnight (mountain daylight time).

Members of The Tabernacle Choir have the unique experience of expressing their faith and talents through music that has the power to help people feel closer to the divine. Their usual duties include weekly performances on the Music & the Spoken Word broadcast plus concerts, tours, and recordings. Choir members average six hours per week rehearsing for 75 scheduled performances per year.

To apply, all applicants must:

  • Be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in good standing.
  • Be between 25 and 55 years of age on April 30, 2023, when Choir service would begin.
  • Currently reside within 100 miles of the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah.

What Is the Choir Application Process?

The application process begins each year on June 1. Since 2019 all Choir applications have been submitted entirely online—even the Church leader endorsement. Before beginning the application, the Choir recommends each applicant first carefully read the Application Guide posted with the application.

Each application requires a digital voice recording and digital photo submission. Upon receipt of the electronic application, the Choir will then email notification to the applicant’s local Church leader and ask for an ecclesiastical endorsement.

What Is the Audition Process?

The process to become a member of the Choir stretches over nine months. An individual must meet the set of membership criteria outlined above and complete a four-phase audition process. The four phases are submission of an electronic application, completion of a musical skills assessment, an in-person audition which includes an interview with a member of the Choir presidency and 16 weeks of training in the Choir School and Chorale at Temple Square. At the conclusion of the four phases, successful candidates become members of The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square.
