{slc} temple square’s tabernacle

June 14, 2016

Imagine 360 men and women all singing together in a great hall directed by a single conductor and accompanied by a single organ. This is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The Tabernacle is a strange oval-shaped building located at Temple Square. It’s home to this impressive choir. During our visit to Temple Square, we got a chance to walk in and take in the impressive organ. There was also a short demonstration of how the acoustics of this strange-shaped building works. During our time there, we found out that the choir actually has open rehearsals the next evening so we shifted our schedule around and made it back here the next evening. It was only then that we found out the rehearsal had been moved to the Convention Center across the street so we trekked our way there. There, we were treated with another major organ as well as essentially a back-stage concert. Man, these individuals are impressive when you put 360 of them together!
