BETHEL, NY (December 10, 2014) – Tickets are on sale this week for the highly anticipated 2015 Mormon Tabernacle Choir Atlantic Coast tour, which will include a stop at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on June 27, 2015.
The tour will feature the 360-voice world-renowned choir and 68 members of the Orchestra at Temple Square. The Choir’s repertoire will cover everything from Bach and Broadway to American folk hymns and spirituals.
Since its first tour outside of Utah in 1893, the Choir has toured extensively across the United States and abroad. It has performed throughout Europe and in music capitals from Israel and Russia to Japan and Australia. Its travels have also included performances at the inaugurations of six U.S. presidents. A full complement of the Orchestra has traveled on tour with the Choir since 2005. The all-volunteer Choir and Orchestra usually tour every other year since all of the performers must take vacation time from their jobs and leave their families to undertake the travel.
The 360-voice choir, accompanied frequently by the 150-member orchestra, can also be heard weekly as part of the “Music and the Spoken Word” broadcast. This 30-minute program is the world’s longest continuing network broadcast and currently airs on over 2,000 radio, TV, cable and satellite stations worldwide. The Choir and Orchestra are active recording artists with their own recording label, Mormon Tabernacle Choir®.
