Learn the “Hallelujah” Chorus Singing Parts with Peter and Evynne Hollens
Early in 2016 the Mormon Tabernacle Choir gave fans the chance of lifetime by inviting singers to join in the world’s largest virtual “Hallelujah” Chorus. Fans from around the globe were encouraged to submit videos of themselves singing along with the “Hallelujah” part of their choice (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). Select singers were chosen to be featured in the final video with the Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square.
YouTube stars Peter Hollens and his wife, Evynne, were brought in to help assist in creating the virtual learning tracks, so singers could be in sync with the Choir. “I am tremendously honored to take part in such an amazing project! I’ve dreamed of singing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir ever since I was in my high school choir,” said Peter in a guest blog post he penned for the Choir’s website.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square will perform Messiah during the 2018 Easter season on March 22 and 23, 2018, in the Salt Lake Tabernacle on Temple Square. Check our Messiah page often for ticket updates.
Although Handel’s Messiah is mostly performed at Christmas or Easter, the music can be enjoyed and celebrated throughout the year. Below are the videos to learn your part so you can join the Choir during their next Messiah sing-a-long.
Note: Since the final virtual "Hallelujah" Chorus video has already been made (see bottom video below), please skip the filming and submission instructions and start playing the video at approximately the 40-second mark.
