The Philippines is the next stop on The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square’s “Hope” world tour. The Choir will be in the Philippines from February 20 to February 29, 2024. This will be the Choir’s first trip to the Philippines. Their multiyear world tour began in Mexico City in June.

The concerts will feature the Choir and guest artists from the Philippines performing a repertoire that reflects, in part, the musicality of the country. Filipinos are a nation of singing people whose choral tradition started in their indigenous origins and continues to this day. Internationally, the Philippines has one of the highest viewerships of the Choir’s weekly broadcast “Music and the Spoken Word.”
