At five minutes to twelve we'd not heard of these recitals but once we did we arrived in time for a half hour recital. The organ has in the region of 11,600 pipes and much of the structure dates back 150 years. We were enchanted by the music. After the recital, the organist came down to the audience to answer...

They have an organ recital every day about noon for about 45 minutes. It was wonderful being in the tabernacle as well.

Every day there are organ recitals at noon, they are free to visit, most of the organists are guests or students from the Tabernacle organists themselves, and also the tabernacle organist might be playing, it's not a long recital so it doesn't take much of your time to visit, the organ sounds fantastic, has a 5 keyboard which is rare,...

The playing of Amazing Grace rendition on the Tabernacle Organ was one I have never heard. I loved the trumpet organ sound.

We were lucky to visit at the time of a recital. The organist and organ sound extra fine with the wonderful acoustics.

Beautiful room, gorgeous 11,600 pipe organ, fabulous acoustics, lights change behind the pipes with the various pieces played. Just a wonderful half hour of mostly classical pieces performed by a great artist on a magnificent organ.

The organ staff and guest organists perform 30-minute recitals in the Tabernacle from 12:00 noon to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Sunday recitals are performed from 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Tabernacle. The music varies by the organist and typically includes classical and popular music. A great way to experience this historic building and relax from the stresses... More

It was free, lasted about 30 minutes, was very professional, great atmosphere and religion was not forced onto you. Recommended.

The noon organ "recital" at the tabernacle is a treat for anyone who enjoys good music. The artist was informative as well as a great performer on the fabulous instrument. If visiting the Temple Square at midday, don't miss the organ performance.
