The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is one of the oldest and largest choirs in the world. Catch their live performance on Sunday mornings in Temple Square to top off your trip to Salt Lake City.
- The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is made up of 360 male and female members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The choir was founded in 1847, only a month after the Mormon pioneers crossed into the Salt Lake Valley. The choir broadcasts its weekly performance called Music and the Spoken Word, which is the longest continually running radio network broadcast in the world.
Most of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's rehearsals and performances are free and open to the public. Weekly rehearsals are held on both Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings before the broadcast performance. The broadcast performance takes place every Sunday morning at 9:30 am and takes place in the Tabernacle at Temple Square. Those wishing to attend the performance must be in their seats by 9:15 am.
