For over 86 years, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has broadcast Music & the Spoken Word each week, providing choral music and messages to uplift and inspire audiences around the world. The first broadcast of Music & the Spoken Word on July 15, 1929 was transmitted using a single microphone to only 30 radio stations. Through the years, as technology improved and changed, the weekly audience for the Choir grew to include appreciative followers who tuned in to their local radio or television station. Since the Choir launched its own YouTube channel in 2012, larger world-wide audiences have been able to access Music & the Spoken Word through Internet streaming of the broadcast. Each week the Choir’s website links to the broadcast live stream for audiences around the world to join us.
Mormon Tabernacle Choir President Ron Jarrett used these words when announcing the Choir’s Summer 2016 tour to Europe: “We are thrilled that for the first time in nearly two decades, international audiences will be able to enjoy the music of the Choir in person.” Tour dates extend from June 27 to July 16, 2016 with concerts in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands. (Tickets for these concerts are still available.)
