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.

We heard an organ recital there; it is where the Choir usually performs. In summer they sing at the LDS Conference center. My husband heard "the pin drop" when he was a child (to demonstrate the fabulous acoustics), but I was most happy to hear the organ recital instead.

Go to see the organ pipes if for nothing else. On Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 there is a bell rehearsal. It's hard to believe how big (and heavy) some of them are. On Friday evenings there is usually a choir rehearsal. It's a must see (hear).

We were welcomed into this beautiful building where we were able to listen to the huge organ being played by a young lady. Any questions that we had were answered by any of the attendants in the building. Accoustics were amazing.
