The world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square has announced the dates for their 2018 Classic Coast Tour. According to LDS Living, the tour takes its name “from the classic musical experience the audiences and performers will share at the specially-selected venues for this tour.”
The musicians are headed to the West Coast for the 2018 tour, performing in five cities, beginning on 18 June 2018 in Costa Mesa, California, and concluding 16 days later in Seattle Washington, on 3 July 2018. Speaking of concert events such as this, Mack Wilberg, the director of the Choir, says, “When we experience great music, in great spaces, it makes for a great experience—both for the audience and the performer as well.” The president of the Choir, Ron Jarrett, adds, “There is nothing quite like hearing the Choir and Orchestra live in concert and experiencing their signature all-encompassing sound. We love going on the road to connect with our audiences and seeing firsthand the pure joy music can bring to the hearts and minds of our fans.”
LDS Living reports that the music for the Classic Coast Tour concerts “will be drawn from the choir’s vast repertoire which ranges from choral masterworks to inspirational music from around the world to American folk hymns and spirituals and much more.”
Ticket purchasing information will be available on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir website as they become available at the various venues where the choir and orchestra will be performing. Everyone is reminded that some venues are smaller than others, making seating limited, and tickets to sell out quickly.
The Choir anticipates adding other California appearances to the Classic Coast Tour with announcements to follow soon. Substitute events on Temple Square have been scheduled during the Choir and Orchestra’s absence.
