What’s New with The Tabernacle Choir

May 2016 Articles

Be a Part of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Have you ever pictured yourself in The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square? Have you said to yourself, “Someday I’ll have the courage to try out” or “In a few more years I’ll have less going on in my life?” Now is the perfect time to audition—the Choir is reaching younger audiences across the globe in new and exciting ways.  

General Conference Music & the Spoken Word Available in Over 60 Languages!

For over 86 years, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has broadcast Music & the Spoken Wordeach 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. 

"Danny Boy": The History and Lyrics

“Danny Boy” is a popular ballad that was written in 1910. Many people associate the song with Ireland, even though lyricist Frederic Weatherly was a British lawyer. The connection came when his Irish-born sister-in-law sent him a copy of the tune “Londonderry Air” in 1913. Upon receiving it, Weatherly modified his lyrics to fit the meter of the tune.

Summer Rehearsal/Broadcast Schedule Changes Due to European Tour!

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.)
