Mormon Tabernacle Choir Will Tour the West Coast in 2018
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square will be taking the show on the road once again. The 16-day Classic Coast Tour begins on Monday, June 18, and will conclude on Tuesday, July 3, 2018.
The tour will make five stops throughout California, Washington, and Canada, including Costa Mesa, Mountain View, and Rohnert Park, California. Then the tour heads up the coast to Vancouver, Canada, before concluding in Seattle, Washington. Links to the specific concert venues as well as information about prior tours is available at motab.org/tour.
The tour takes its name from the classic musical experience the audiences and performers will share at the specially selected venues for this tour. Of these musical experiences, Choir music director Mack Wilberg said, “When we experience great music in great spaces, it makes for a great experience—not only for the audience, but for the performer as well.”
Music for the Classic Coast Tour concerts will be drawn from the Choir’s vast repertoire, which ranges from choral masterworks to inspirational music from around the world to American folk hymns and spirituals and much more. Further information about ticket purchases will be posted on motab.org/tour as tickets become available at the various venues. It is anticipated tickets will be available at most venues by December 1, 2017. Seating is limited in some venues, and tickets are likely to sell quickly in those locations.
Ron Jarrett, president of the Choir, said, “There is nothing quite like hearing the Choir and Orchestra live in concert and experiencing their signature all-encompassing sound. We love going on the road to connect with our audiences and seeing firsthand the pure joy music can bring to the hearts and minds of our fans.”
As they do every other year, the Choir and Orchestra look forward to performing for audiences on tour next summer. Here are some video highlights of past tours:
