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

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
