Music and the Spoken Word

This past Sunday found us in Salt Lake City. We wanted to find one of our church meetings to attend, and had heard that Temple Square had one, so we headed there early Sunday morning. As we were walking past the conference center, we were told that the Mormon Tabernacle choir was getting ready to broadcast their weekly, "Music and the Spoken Word". We happily went in and found a seat to enjoy the broadcast. I've heard the choir sing many times, but it was wonderful to hear them with the full orchestra in the conference center where the acoustics are amazing. I was very impressed by the organist, who I'm sure must have a history as a concert organist because he gave us a wonderful solo performance. If you are ever in Salt Lake City on Thursday night, or Sunday morning, I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the free concert to hear them practice Thursday night, or broadcast Sunday morning. You can find more information about the choir by clicking this link.
