On May 20 President Gordon B. Hinckley, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, and Elder Robert E. Wells welcomed guests to a Gala Inaugural Concert at the newly renovated Assembly Hall on Temple Square. Fourteen artists performed in this first concert of the Temple Square Concert Series.
In welcoming guests to the concert, Elder Wells, of the First Quorum of the Seventy and chairman of the Temple Square coordinating committee, noted that activities such as the inaugural concert have long been an LDS tradition. President Hinckley, of the First Presidency, added that “this kind of concert satisfies a need in the community and evidences the love of our people for that which is beautiful and good.”
