Boy, this building is amazing. I will always remember the amazing acoustics. Make sure you get a tour and ask if they can do the "pin drop" demonstration.

I have to say that I found The Tabernacle to be a little on the boring side and not that impressive when you have toured some of the great church cathedrals around the world. To me it really was an old outdated building....sorry...not trying to upset anyone's religion....just wasn't my cup of tea.

I visited the Mormon Tabernacle to hear the choir rehearse on Thursday night, and then I returned for the live radio broadcast on Sunday morning. I have heard the choir on TV, but to actually see the choir, and hear their voices live was an experience that was amazing.

I walked around Temple Square last night (Thursday). They were having practice, the Elders were so nice and informative. The choir sounded amazing - and director was hilarious in giving feedback to the members. I was very lucky to have a friend who is LDS and she was very informative as well, however there are many Elders/volunteers that will answer... More

We were walking around Temple Square admiring the buildings when we happened on the Sunday afternoon organ recital in the Mormon Tabernacle. What an amazing experience. For those of us who love classic church organ music, this is a can't miss. The Elder introduced the organist and briefly described the organ and the tabernacle. The concert lasted about 45 minutes...

This was a beautiful building and grounds. Parking was excellent and great staff. The reflecting pool and the informational presentation of quotes along with the visitor center movie was a highlight.

The tabernacle is such a beautiful place to visit and sit and listen to the organist rehearse. There is a practice time around 12 noon, that i attended. Ensure your tourist timetable allows for spending some time listening to the amazing music.

During our visit to Salt Lake City we were fortunate to go to the old Tabernacle when there was an organ recital. Music by J S Bach was being played and my whole body was alive with the vibration of the sound. What amazing acoustics. At the conclusion of the recital it was possible to hear a whisper from the...

The tabernacle was built as an early meeting house for large numbers of members of the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Two highlights are the pipe organ and free concerts are available. Also, the acoustics and roof design allow a pin to be dropped from the podium and heard throughout the entire building. The missionaries stationed here will... More
