It was beautiful I always make a point to stop and see the Tabernacle. If you can catch the choir I would highly recommend doing so. The organ pipes are quite amazing to see and everyone is so kind.

Even if you only have an hour in downtown Salt Lake City, it is best spent at Temple Square. Friendly guides, beautiful gardens, pioneer history, Utah heritage and culture. When in Rome, Catholics and non-Catholics alike go to the Vatican. In Salt Lake, it is Temple Square

Stopped for a rather quick tour here. No choir, just the echoes of our group as we were told to wait in the entrance as the tour guide made his way to the other end of the tabernacle. His whispered instructions to remain quiet could be heard even from that distance as he dropped a needle that we could all... More

The choir practices on Thursday nights. Although the conductor had them going over the same verses time after time, when he was finally satisfied with the sound, the choir sang the whole song. Just sent shivers down my spine. To think I had the chance to hear them live!!!! Who cares if it was only practice!

Fortunate enough to get free tickets to this special anniversary concert. Igor Gruppman, conductor of the Orchestra at Temple Square for over a decade, lead the anniversary concert which featured Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto no. 1 in B-flat Minor, op. 23. Originally written in 1874, the concerto is one of Tchaikovsky’s most beloved works. The soloist for the piano concerto was... More

A very impressive building - especially inside. Unfortunately, just arrived too late to catch the organ recital. It must really be an experience when the choir are singing here. Full of tour groups (plus a translator for many of them) - so not a particularly restful atmosphere.

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.
