Temple Square Concert Series Set for Autumn

  • 16 August 2011

The Temple Square concert series is generally classical in nature and appeals to a variety of audiences. Marilyn Lorensen, program manager for Temple Square performances said that for the many tourists who visit Temple Square, the performances can “help them feel the Spirit” in a neutral, inviting way.

All of the performances are free and artists volunteer their talents.
