It was very interesting the see the Tabernacle. Unfortunately we missed the choir which practices on Thursday and sings on Sundays. However they have a guest organist every day around noon for about 45 minutes. The acoustics are terrific. It is free and on the temple grounds.

I have always wanted to see and hear the amazing Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I finally was given the opportunity duirng a recent business trip to Salt Lake City. The building itself is not overly showy or impressive--very basic. The accounstics of the building are particularly impressive. Also, I highly reccommend visiting the nearby visitors centers--very informative.

Come by when someone's practicing the Organ or when the choir's rehearsing. It's a cool building, but not my favorite on the 'slc-sights' tour.

Visited this building as part of a tour of Temple Square. A remarkable building - one of a kind - I don't think there is anything else quite like it anywhere. The history is incredible.

We attended the organ recital at noon. It was amazing to get to see the tabernacle and hear the organ played. Would definitely recommend.

It is best to go early to get a good seat. Though, sitting in the balcony is always good. You can see a lot more from up there. If you can't make the Sunday Service, going to the Choir rehearsal on Thursday evenings is an option.

This was part of the Temple square. All it is, is an old orchestra hall. The natural acoustics were amazing... but not really worth the trip. I would love to see the choir here though.

Got to catch a tour of the grounds and this is one of the places they spoke about. Very neat building and the acoustic demonstration was pretty neat too.

I like history. I like to see and experience just what people did in the past and, more importantly, see how they did it. Taking a tour of the Tabernacle will do just that. You get to see how the building was constructed of wood and rawhide. Wow!

And yes they do drop the pin. Listened to the organ recital held at noon everyday and it was great. We did arrive early to make sure we could get in but there was lots of room and they only open the doors about 10 minutes early.
