Event Description

Repertoire for the concert will include the Vivaldi Concerto for Four Violins in B Minor, op. 3, no. 10; Gounod’s Petite Symphonie; and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony no. 5 in E Minor. Soloists for the concert repertoire will be members of the Orchestra at Temple Square

The Orchestra at Temple Square was established in 1999 as a companion ensemble to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Each week up to 85 musicians, drawn from a roster of more than 200 volunteers, provide instrumental support to the Choir in the weekly broadcast of Music and the Spoken Word. The Orchestra performs with the Choir in joint concerts as well as presenting its own fall symphonic concert in the Tabernacle. Since its founding, an ensemble from the Orchestra has performed on tour with the Choir, and since 2005, a full complement of the Orchestra has participated. Like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir members, the Orchestra members serve as musical goodwill ambassadors for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
