Four Ways to View the Pioneer Day Concert with Alex Boyé!

Late Breaking Announcement: Due to unavoidable and unanticipated scheduling conflicts with his current TV series, Christopher Jackson will not be able to appear on the 2017 Pioneer Day concerts.  Alex Boyé, singer, entertainer, and mega-million view YouTube artist, will now headline the concert.  Click here for more information.

The Choir is excited to provide additional viewing options for the annual “Music for a Summer Evening” concert, held in conjunction with Pioneer Day celebrations honoring the arrival of the Mormon pioneers to Utah in 1847.

This special concert provides an enjoyable opportunity to create your own Pioneer Day celebration traditions by viewing the concert with family, friends, and neighbors in the comfort of your own home or in church and community centers. Personalize your event with a focus on family and community pioneers, or focus on modern-day pioneers in your local communities.
