Events on Temple Square During The Tour
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square will be heading west for their 2018 Classic Coast Tour from June 18 to July 3, 2018.
Adjustments have been made to the regular schedule of rehearsals and broadcasts in Salt Lake City while the Choir and Orchestra are gone. Since bells are used on tour, rehearsals for the Bells on Temple Square are also impacted by the tour. Special events have been scheduled for those whose summer travel plans include a visit to Temple Square when the Choir and Orchestra are out of town.
Pre-Tour Concert on Thursday, June 14, 2018
Before leaving on tour, the Choir and Orchestra will present a concert of tour repertoire for family, friends, and the public on Thursday, June 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. Doors open at 7:15 p.m.; tickets are not required. This concert will replace the regular public Thursday night rehearsal of the Choir and Orchestra.
Music & the Spoken Word Live Broadcast Alternatives
Sundays on June 24 and July 1, 2018
Live performance broadcasts will not be given on these dates. Instead, at 9:15 a.m. one of the Choir’s Sunday morning hosts will welcome those who come to Temple Square. A short organ recital (approximately ten minutes) will be performed, and at 9:30 a.m. the pre-recorded new Music & the Spoken Word broadcast airing on KSL-TV and the CBS Radio Network will be shown on screens in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. Live performance broadcasts will resume on Sunday, July 8 in the Conference Center.
Mormon Tabernacle Choir Public Rehearsal Alternatives
Thursdays on June 21 and June 28, 2018
Although the Choir and Orchestra will not be rehearsing these two Thursdays, the public is invited to come to Temple Square at 7:30 p.m. for a short organ recital and two Music and the Spoken Word recorded episodes which will be shown on screens in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. Regular Thursday night public rehearsals will resume on Thursday, July 5 in the Conference Center when the Choir and Orchestra return.
