“Tabernacle Choir to Tour Southern States,” Ensign, Feb. 2001, 75
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform in concert halls of eight southern U.S. cities from 15–27 June.
“There is a mission behind the tour,” said Mac Christensen, newly appointed president of the choir. “We want to establish in the minds of people that Jesus Christ indeed is central to our faith.”
The program will include well-known choir numbers focusing on the life of Christ, a broad spectrum of classical favorites, and Americana musical selections.
Seventeen musicians from the Orchestra at Temple Square will accompany the 330-voice choir.
