Mormon Tabernacle Choir

We took the shuttle from Salt Lake City KOA to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir as they performed their 4,270th live broadcast.

The choir usually perform in the Tabernacle, however due to increased visitor numbers during the summer and in December the live broadcasts take place in the conference centre which holds 21,000 people.  There were 5,000 people on the day we were there.

Both the choir and the symphony orchestra are comprised of volunteers. To join the choir you have to pass an audition, if accepted you then spend some time in the choir training school joining the choir when a place becomes available.   Members can remain with the choir for 20 years or until they reach a certain age, which I think was 60.

They are extremely good and we really enjoyed the performance.

Have fun, we are!
