The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square will begin a livestream organ recital series from the Salt Lake Tabernacle on Temple Square later this month.
The current COVID-19 pandemic temporarily halted the organ recitals in the historic Tabernacle, which have been a tradition for more than a century. But noon recitals will now resume via the internet, without an audience, several days a week. That means organ enthusiasts and fans of the choir and its weekly broadcast, “Music and the Spoken Word,” can enjoy the music of the famous organs at Temple Square wherever they are in the world.
The opening event, “Piping Up: Tabernacle Organists in Concert,” will air June 17, 2020, at 7 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time on the choir’s YouTube channel, the choir’s website and the Church’s live watch page. The 45-minute concert will include a wide variety of music from classical to traditional hymns and spirituals.
The concert will feature the five Tabernacle and Temple Square organists: Richard Elliott, Andrew Unsworth, Brian Mathias, Linda Margetts and Joseph Peeples.
