Enjoy the Christmas Music of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
Music is everywhere at Christmastime, especially when family, friends, church, and community groups gather. Christmas music is the soundtrack of the season as we celebrate our beliefs, hopes, and joys.
Here are some of the many ways you can find the music of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square this Christmas season:
PBS Christmas Broadcasts
On December 19, 2016, PBS stations will be broadcasting the new one-hour special, Christmas with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir featuring Laura Osnes and Martin Jarvis. Check your local PBS stations for times and additional broadcast dates. The full concert is available on the Hallelujah! CD and DVD.
