Under the direction of Mack Wilberg, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir & Orchestra at Temple Square will perform at the Daines Concert Hall on the Utah State University campus Saturday, Sept. 22, at 2 and 7 p.m.
The program for the Logan performance features many genres of music, ranging from classical choral literature to contemporary sacred and popular music.
Craig Jessop, dean of the Caine College of the Arts, was music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir from 1999-2008.
“The choir performed in the Kent Concert Hall when it first opened in 1967,” Jessop said. “To have them back for an inaugural performance in the Daines Concert Hall is an honor and a privilege.”
For more than a century, the choir has given voice to the hopes, joys, trials and triumphs of people around the world. The chorus has performed worldwide, from Europe to Asia to U.S. presidential inaugurations. They are dedicated to the universal language of music that has the power to bring joy, peace and healing to its listeners while transcending cultural and generational boundaries to bring people around the world together through music.
