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.

This building is where the Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs for part of the year. Originally it seated up to 7000 people, but through several refurbishings interior seating has been reduced to about 3000 - in part due to the larger sized people of the 21st century compared to the 19th. Acoustics are incomparable - the tour guides like to do... More

If you are visiting Salt Lake, no matter what your religious believes, a trip to Temple Square and the Tabernacle is a must see. The building is unbelievable, especially considering when and under what circumstances it was built.
