Tickets for The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square’s June 17-18 concerts in the National Auditorium in Mexico City, Mexico, have all been distributed, announced The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mexico Facebook page.
It states in Spanish: “Los boletos para las presentaciones del coro del Tabernaculo en el auditorio nacional se han agotado. Ya no se repartiran mas boletos en las estacas este domingo 21 de mayo. Gracia por su comprension.”
(In English: Tickets for the Tabernacle Choir performances at the National Auditorium have sold out. No more tickets will be distributed in stakes this Sunday, May 21. Thanks for your understanding.)
The choir and Orchestra at Temple Square are going to Mexico City June 13-19, as the first part of a four-year global tour to share a message of hope, as announced on April 25.
The free tickets were distributed by members of the Church throughout the city for the concerts in the nearly 10,000-seat National Auditorium. The concert on June 17 is scheduled to be broadcast nationally online.
The concerts in Mexico City will also feature guest artists from Mexico with a repertoire that reflects in part the musicality of the culture.
The Tabernacle Choir shared a video earlier this week, on May 17, about the choir’s preparation for its tour, including learning songs in Spanish and that there are three choir members from Mexico.
This is the choir and orchestra’s first tour since the 2018 Classic Coast Tour, including concerts in California, Washington and British Columbia. The 2020 Heritage Tour, which was to include concerts in six European cities, was postponed and ultimately canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The choir was previously in Mexico in 1972 when it performed at the National Auditorium during an area general conference. In 1968, the choir sang at the dedication of the El Centro Escolar Benemerito de Las Americas school, now the site of the Mexico Missionary Training Center.
