This was well worth the time to stay and listen. The woman who performed was extremely good. The pipe organ is HUGE! How anyone can perform on it with all the levels of controls and pedals needing to be pushed is extraordinary. Music was loud but beautiful. The acoustics were surprising. Audience must be extremely quiet. May not be for... More

We wanted to see the Tabernacle, but the choir was not in town. Instead, we went to one of the frequent organ recitals. Magnificent! Short acoustic demo was an eye-opener. Building is dated and a bit worn, but still impressive. If you're around Temple Square you don't want to miss this.

This is a must see historical, architectural engineering feat. Step inside to take a load off your weary feet and enjoy the fabulous acoustics of this 19th century domed delight.

We attended the 2 PM FREE recital on Sunday in the Mormon Tabernacle. The organist was amazing, her hands flew over the keyboards (there are 5). The organ has more than 11,000 pipes and the sound was unbelievable. Before she began the concert the organist demonstrated the amazing acoustics of the building; you can literally hear a pin drop more... More

Always a treat to hear while in Salt Lake, dating myself but miss hearing the late Alexander Schreiner (chief organist).

Organ recitals are daily at noon, and free of charge. They last approximately half hour. It is well worth attending. Not only you will hear one of the largest organ in the world, but in addition, the building has incredible acoustics. They demonstrate, that you can really hear a pin drop without any microphones. If someone does not like classical... More

The massive organ has such great sounds, the music helps you forget the problems of the day. Great place to go to regain focus in your life.
