The 2022 Church Music Festival — an annual concert highlighting original Church music and lyrics submitted by members throughout the world — will be held Saturday, Aug. 6.

The live concert “Rejoice!” begins at 7:30 p.m. Mountain Time and originates from the Conference Center Theater on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. Members worldwide can tune in online on the Church’s broadcast page. The live concert is sold out.

Featuring original award-winning works from the 2021 and 2022 Church Music Submission, the 90-minute festival will introduce new music resources to members, particularly those with music callings.

The annual Church Music Submission encourages the development of musical talent and brings new musical works to light by inviting Latter-day Saints to submit original music for consideration, including hymns and children songs, hymn arrangements for choirs, soloists and instrumentalists, and choir anthems.

A recording of the 2022 Church Music Festival will be archived on Gospel Library, the Sacred Music app, and Gospel Media for on-demand viewing. Sheet music from this concert will be made available to download for free at
