This activity is free and open to the public. Excellent organist, good acoustics. The multi-age audience was quiet and respectful making for a lovely 30-minute respite.

Loved the recital. Gave me a new appreciation of organ music. Very comfortable setting. Loved the lighting that accompanied the music.

We have heard several great organs, but I have to rate this one the best. Just be sure to get there in time to secure a seat. When the doors close - that's it! We barely made it and so happy we did!

Earlier in the day we walked temple square and went into the tabernacle. It's impressive. However, the organ recital brings it to life. The organist demonstrated the acoustics but shredding papers and dropping pins - unbelievable. It was like it was right next to us. Then the organ music started. I'm not a huge fan of organ music but WOW!... More

It's free, it's world class. Go listen. It's only 30 minutes, but the program is varied and excellent.

Attended the 10:00 a.m. as well as the 2:00 p.m. as recommended by the organist to hear the contrast in hall as well as the organs. The sounds and performance was great. While the recital is brief, the pieces performed represent the range of the organs. A Must for music appreciation lover.

Not only do you get to see the beautiful Tabernacle, you get to hear an organ recital on an instrument that is amazing. Our only problem is we could barely hear the organist speak and were told that we got the "quiet" organist. His playing more than made up for it! Even if you aren't a music lover, don't miss... More

If you are in downtown Salt Lake City, this short, free organ concert is more than worth a visit. The organist will put one of the world's biggest pipe organs through its paces, and that's impressive. Before the organ concert a Mormon minion will demonstrate the curious acoustics of the Tabernacle by dropping a pin on the stage, which you... More

I lucked into being in the right place at the right time to hear an entire recital last month. It was preceded by a little history about the building, the music, and massive pipe organ. I just knew I was in for a treat. But then the music started, and it was just...a letdown. I'm sure the organist was quite... More
