Tabernacle Choir to Perform in Texas and Wyoming

The Tabernacle Choir has scheduled summer 1987 concert appearances in Dallas, Texas, and Teton Village, Wyoming, according to Wendell M. Smoot, choir president.

In Dallas, the choir will appear in joint concert with the Vocal Majority, a 120-voice, all-male national champion barbershop chorus, on Friday and Saturday, June 19 and 20. The two concerts will commemorate the two-hundredth anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. The concerts will be held in Reunion Arena.

In August, the choir will participate in the Grand Teton Music Festival, where it will sing Mendelssohn’s Elijah. Robert Shaw will be the guest conductor.

The Wyoming concerts will be held in Teton Village’s Festival Hall. The first performance is scheduled for Friday, August 21, while the second will be held either Saturday, August 22, or Sunday, August 23. Arrangements are still being made.

The appearances mark the third time the Tabernacle Choir has participated in the festival.

The Choir’s weekly CBS network radio program, “Music and the Spoken Word,” will be broadcast from Reunion Arena in Dallas on Sunday, June 21, and from Teton Village on Sunday, August 23.
