The Chorale at Temple Square and the Orchestra at Temple Square will join their musical talents for their traditional Spring concert in the Salt Lake Tabernacle on Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. This will be the first live concert by the Choir organization ensembles in the Tabernacle with a public audience in two years! The evening performances will be under the baton of Ryan Murphy, associate music director of The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square and conductor of the Chorale.
The Tabernacle Choir, Orchestra at Temple Square, Bells at Temple Square, and the Gabriel Trumpet Ensemble will stream He Is Risen: A Special Easter Celebration. The stream will be available around the world wherever the Internet is available. It will be streamed in English as well as an additional 23 languages where translations are subtitled or overdubbed.
After a pause in 2021, the Choir School experience that hopeful new Tabernacle Choir singers have been waiting for has finally arrived for 67 new participants—34 women and 33 men! This large group of 2022 Choir School students includes singers selected from both the 2020 and 2021 audition periods who were successful in passing the first three levels of the audition process to become singing members of The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square. The last steps of the months-long audition process include completing the Choir School training and singing with the Chorale at Temple Square. The Choir School participants will be invited to sing as members of The Tabernacle Choir at the conclusion of their successful Choir School completion.
It's safe to say that the creation of music streaming services has definitely enhanced the way we listen to music today. Before streaming, if you wanted to listen to music you either had to purchase the music via download to play on your phone or computer, buy a physical recording to play at home on your own CD player (or for those who remember, a record player or a tpae deck) or you could listen to the radio and just hope you would hear your favorite songs.
On March 6, 2022, The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square resume live broadcasts of Music & the Spoken Word from the historic Tabernacle on Temple Square. It has been ten weeks—eight weeks longer than planned—since The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square members have been able to perform together in person.
