New Temple Square Organist Appointed

After a broad and thorough search of applicants that was announced through Church and media channels around the world, The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square announced on Friday, April 12, 2019, that Joseph Peeples has been appointed as the newest Temple Square organist. Peeples joins a long line of distinguished musicians who have served as organists on Temple Square, continuing a tradition that stretches back to early pioneer days in Utah. When he begins his service this June, he will join three current full-time Tabernacle organists: Richard Elliott, Andrew Unsworth, and Brian Mathias, and two other part-time Temple Square organists, Bonnie Goodliffe and Linda Margetts.
