Mormon Tabernacle Choir to hold Broadway-themed concerts in honor of Pioneer Day this year

“Break time” are two words that won’t be found in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s and Orchestra at Temple Square’s vast repertoire.

Just a couple weeks after wrapping-up their 2018 Classic Coast Tour along the Pacific Coast, they are back for two more evening concerts.

The choir and orchestra will celebrate the Pioneer Day holiday with “Music for a Summer Evening” — a Broadway-themed program to be held on Friday, July 20, and Saturday, June 21, at 8 p.m. in the Conference Center on Temple Square.

The choir and orchestra will welcome three guests for the two Pioneer Day concerts: Broadway and television star Matthew Morrison; Broadway and London stage star Laura Michelle Kelly; and Oscar “Andy” Hammerstein III, grandson of beloved lyricist Oscar Hammerstein.

At press time, there were no tickets available. But if you can’t make it to the Conference Center, there are several other ways to view the concert, both live and via replay.
