In Utah this week: Tabernacle Choir broadcast and Utah Valley Parade of Homes

Watch a broadcast performance from the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, participate in a virtual author discussion or visit the Utah Valley Parade of Homes this week

The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square performs during the annual Pioneer Day concert at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City on Friday, July 20, 2018. This year, the Choir will not perform a live Pioneer Day concert and instead will broadcast the prerecorded program “Music for a Summer Evening: Celebrating 90 Years of Broadcasting” on July 18.
