"9/11 | Coming Together" 20th Anniversary Special

Music & the Spoken Word Performances

Music & the Spoken Word has been a broadcast tradition since 1929. Even during the temporary pandemic pause of all live performances beginning in March 2020, the program has been continuously broadcast using The Tabernacle Choir’s large archive of digital performance recordings. With the benefit of modern technology, new Spoken Words written for this unique time period have been added giving timely and needed inspiration for audiences around the world.

Update September 17, 2021:

The Tabernacle Choir organization will gradually return to its schedule of rehearsals and broadcasts on Temple Square with a COVID protocol plan in place. Audiences will not be invited to join them at this time.

When Public Performances Resume: No Tickets Required; Doors Open at 8:30 a.m.

When public performances resume, admission is free but is limited to those eight years of age and older. Doors open to the public at 8:30 a.m., and guests should be seated by 9:15 a.m., when the doors are closed. The broadcast is 30 minutes in length and ends at 10:00 a.m.

Even during the Christmas holidays, no tickets are required for any of the December Music & the Spoken Word broadcasts in the Conference Center. (Tickets are required for the annual Christmas concerts of the Choir and Orchestra.)
