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.

I think it all depends on what music got played and if you like that music. The one we listened in is quite loud and not the traditional church music we had expected

THe massive organ is both historic and awesome to hear. A real pipe organ is a treat to listen to, especially when played by a real expert.

The organ recitals are in the tabernacle which is an exceptional place itself. When we went the organist was outstanding and took time after the recital to answer questions from the audience. The daily recitals are about 30 minutes. The organ produces a variety of musical sounds and is very impressive. Take time to visit during your time in Salt... More

okay wife saw went to this a day earlier and was enjoyed enough to talk me into going the next day. It is a 30 minute program with the pipe organ and an experienced keyboarder. To see this grand organ is one thing to hear it played by a master is another. Some try but only a few are real... More

Even though I lived in SLC for over 35 years, I didn't get down to hear the recitals as much as I would have liked. The Tabernacle is a lovely building in itself, but to hear the organ play is awesome. A "must-see" while in Salt Lake.

The organ recital is a must! You will get to experience the perfect acoustics of the tabernacle building. Hear a pin dropped on the podium with a distinct clarity on the back row!!

Prior to the recital, they give a short demonstration of the acoustics and you can experience it for yourself. I really enjoyed this.

An excellent organ recital is available at noon everyday at Temple Square, at no cost. The building has amazing acoustics, you can hear a nail dropped on stage while sitting at the back. The church does not charge for this concert, and it is a good way to spent a few hours while in Salt Lake City.
