Orchestra at Temple Square and Temple Square Chorale 2018 Spring Concert
The Orchestra at Temple Square and Temple Square Chorale will join their musical talents for this year’s Spring Concert in the Salt Lake Tabernacle on Friday and Saturday, April 20-21, 2018. The evening’s performances will be under the baton of Ryan Murphy, associate music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and conductor of the Temple Square Chorale. Ticket availability will be announced soon.
The Orchestra at Temple Square is an all-volunteer musical organization formed at the direction of Gordon B. Hinckley, then President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its charter is to accompany the musical ensembles of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir organization and also to perform in concerts of its own.
The Temple Square Chorale was formed in 1999, as part of changes to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir organization which included the creation of the Orchestra at Temple Square. The Chorale serves as a training ensemble for new members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It is comprised of new members completing their audition process as well as those members who were new to the Choir the previous year plus a few other current Choir members to provide a complement of roughly 110 singers.
Tickets for the concert will be required, but free to the public. Information regarding tickets will be published closer to the concert.
