The Temple Square Chorale and the Orchestra at Temple Square will be performing their annual spring concert at the Salt Lake Tabernacle on March 20 and 21.

The performances will be conducted by Ryan Murphy, the associate music director of the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square and conductor of the Temple Square Chorale. The Chorale and Orchestra will be joined by Melissa Heath as the featured soprano soloist.

The program will include the Utah premiere of “Life Songs,” two new pieces written by Ryan Murphy which were originally commissioned by the Dallas Symphony Chorus.

The concert will also feature performances of “Folk Songs of the Four Seasons” by composer Ralph Vaughn Williams; “Let the People Praise Thee,” written by William Matthias for the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana; and “Gloria,” from the French composer Francis Poulenc.

The Temple Square Chorale is a training ensemble for new members of the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square who are completing their audition process. It also includes members who are new to the choir within the previous year, as well as some current choir members.

Tickets for the concerts are free but required and are available at ChurchofJesusChrist.org/Events.
