There is no way to describe in a review how good the weekly performance is. If you're lucky then you're in town on a Sunday morning when it's in the Tabernacle. It is phenomenal and everyone will tell you that after they walk out the doors. It's a very powerful experience that is generally appreciated much more by those who are senior in age. Half the year they're in the Tabernacle and during the busy summer and Christmas season they're in the Conference Center. The Tabernacle seats about 3000 and the Conference Center seats 21,000, so that's why they change buildings during the tourist season.
No tickets are required, no dress code; you have to be in your seats by 9:15am. If you're going to a broadcast in the Tabernacle during the late spring or fall then you will want to arrive very early because the good seats fill up very fast. Locals pour in around 9am, tour buses with 50 tourists each will come in fast and steal up all of the seats.
TIP: They begin a full dress rehearsal at 8:30am, so arrive for that and get the best seats and catch the performance twice. And you can take pictures during the rehearsal; you cannot take pictures or record video during the broadcast.
BEST TIP OF ALL: Plan your trip to include Sunday. Do it and you will be very glad you did. If you can't be in town on Sunday then there is a Thursday night rehearsal that is open to the public. It's nice, but it's a rehearsal so it won't ever compare to being at an actual broadcast.
ALSO: when planning your trip, make sure to check the Choir's schedule on their website--they go on tour for two weeks every summer. You don't want to plan your trip for a time they'll be off in another state or country.
