Come Visit: 2018 Summer Schedule on Temple Square!

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square invite the public to join them for free weekly public Thursday rehearsals and the Sunday Music and the Spoken Word broadcasts in the Tabernacle on Temple Square.

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. (Tickets are available for some of the tour locations now!) While they are away, adjustments have been made to the regular schedule of rehearsals and broadcasts in Salt Lake City. Since bells are used by the Choir on tour, rehearsals for the Bells on Temple Square are also impacted by the tour. See specifics below:
