Over a decade ago, LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley, in remarks at the 75th anniversary of the Choir’s weekly Music & the Spoken Word broadcast, said that the Choir was only at the foothills at what it could accomplish. These many years later, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is climbing mountains, according to Ron Jarrett, Mormon Tabernacle Choir president. After three years at the helm, Jarrett looks back at the growth and trajectory of the organization of more than 600 volunteers including the Choir, Orchestra at Temple Square, Bells on Temple Square, and staff, and says, “We are out of the foothills and starting to climb mountains. But, we have yet to reach our potential.”
The new video for “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly” is nothing short of breathtaking—set in a men’s prison, the gritty backdrop provides the perfect setting for a redemption story. The video follows an inmate’s journey, which beautifully depicts hope and healing through Jesus Christ.
The 2014 Christmas concert was nothing short of magical. Santino Fontana, along with the Muppets® from Sesame Street®, were guests of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square for the concerts. When we sat down with the puppeteers from Sesame Workshop® after the Christmas concert run, they were effusive in their praise of the Choir, the crew, and the entire organization.
Now you can literally keep Christmas with you all through the year—and beyond. The full HD recording of the 2014 concert Keep Christmas With You, featuring Santino Fontana and the the Muppets® from Sesame Street®, is now available on iTunes digital download.
