Music & the Spoken Word Performances
Public audiences are invited to join the live performances of Music & the Spoken Word each Sunday morning on Temple Square. Audiences can also stream Music & the Spoken Word each week from anywhere in the world from TheTabernacleChoir.org. For streaming and broadcast options, check the Where to Watch page.
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 was 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 were added giving timely and needed inspiration for audiences around the world.
No Tickets Required*; Doors Open at 8:30 a.m.
Admission to public performances is free but 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 Sunday Music & the Spoken Word broadcasts in the Conference Center. (Tickets are required for the annual Christmas concerts of the Choir and Orchestra held during that week.)
