Tabernacle Choir President Michael O. Leavitt shares the choir and orchestra’s 3 goals while in Mexico in this Church News video

The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square and Orchestra at Temple Square’s recent concerts in Mexico are part of a multiyear global tour to spread hope. 

“The message of hope was delivered,” Tabernacle Choir President Michael O. Leavitt said of the June 13-19 tour. In this video, titled “Choir in Mexico,” President Leavitt shares three goals during the choir’s time in Mexico. 

“We were embraced by Mexico, and I believe Mexico felt embraced by us,” he said. 

Mack Wilberg, the choir’s music director, said that he felt it was important that choir members do as much as possible in Spanish. 

“It was just really a delight and a great experience from beginning to end,” Wilberg said of the Mexico tour.
