About the Concerts
UPDATE: The April 7, 2021 stream marks the 100th Piping Up! episode of these new concerts begun in June 2020. Since that time, Piping Up! performances have been viewed more than 2.5 million times by people all over the world.
Beginning Wednesday, January 13, 2021, the Piping Up! Organ Concerts at Temple Square adjusted its weekly tradition of streaming to every Wednesday at noon (mountain time).
Noon organ concerts have been a tradition on Temple Square for more than a century. In 2020 the pandemic temporarily halted this tradition, but in June 2020 the noon organ concerts resumed using digital streams, without an audience but with full COVID-compliant precautions.
All five accomplished Tabernacle and Temple Square organists, Richard Elliott, Andrew Unsworth, Brian Mathias, Linda Margetts, and Joseph Peeples, are featured in this continuing concert streaming tradition. Each concert features one of the five organists performing a wide variety of music selections from classical to traditional hymns and spirituals.
Piping Up! Concerts Continue to be Available on Demand
The weekly Wednesday organ streams, like those since the concerts’ inception in June, will be available for viewing on-demand following the stream. Previous concerts are found on the Choir’s YouTube channel and Facebook page with the name of the performing organist and their concert music repertoire listed.
