He Is Risen: A Special Easter Celebration focuses on the joy, hope and promise the Resurrection of the Savior, Jesus Christ, brings to God’s children throughout the world. Download or view the He Is Risen program here with the words to “He Is Risen” for the audience to sing with the Choir.
Beginning with Mack Wilberg’s arrangements of “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today” and “That Easter Day with Joy Was Bright,” the program moves to the hymn “How Great the Wisdom and the Love” and readings from the New Testament accounts of the Resurrection young adults from Africa, Latin America, the Philippines, and the United States. A young man of Latin descent speaks in American Sign Language (with a voice interpreter). The music celebrates the Savior's triumphant Resurrection using Wilberg’s edition of “Unfold Ye Portals” from Gounod’s The Redemption and Ryan Murphy’s arrangement of “In the Garden,” followed by Wilberg’s arrangement of “He Is Risen.”
The program next explores the promise of the Resurrection with former Tabernacle organist Robert Cundick’s “And What Is It We Shall Hope For?” from The Redeemer and Wilberg’s "Tree of Life," the title track from a 2018 Choir album by the Choir and Orchestra. The concert ends with Wilberg’s arrangement of “Love Divine, All Loves Excelling” found on the Choir and Orchestra’s album Let Us All Press On and “Worthy Is the Lamb” from Handel’s Messiah as the benediction.
Composed of 360 volunteer voices, The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square singers provide artistic expressions of their faith to help people feel closer to the divine. Orchestra at Temple Square, a 200-member all-volunteer symphony orchestra, was organized in 1999 to perform orchestral works and accompany the musical ensembles of The Tabernacle Choir organization. Bells at Temple Square is a 32-member all-volunteer group organized in 2005 as part of The Tabernacle Choir organization. The Gabriel Trumpet Ensemble—performing with their signature herald trumpets—are musicians from the Salt Lake community who have performed with the Choir and Orchestra since 2017 in concerts.
