Tickets for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square’s performance of Messiah at this year’s Easter Concert were snapped up by music enthusiasts in seven and a half minutes last Tuesday leaving thousands of choir fans asking the question, “How can we see the concert?”

It also touched off a flurry of activity at the Choir’s offices whose staff worked tirelessly to find unprecedented ways to make the Choir’s rendition of Handel’s masterpiece available to everyone as a gift to the world this Easter. There are now three new ways fans can see and hear Messiah.

Messiah will be simulcast to the Conference Center Little Theater on April 18 and 19. Requests for these additional complimentary tickets will be on-line only at lds.org/events, beginning Tuesday, March 18, at 6:00 p.m.

Messiah will also be simulcast to the Legacy Theater in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building for both concerts. These tickets are available via a random ticket selection process with further details available at mormontabernaclechoir.org/messiah.

In addition, the concerts will be live-streamed on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s website and available on-demand at mormontabernaclechoir.org/messiah and at YouTube.com/MormonTabChoir during the Easter weekend. The live stream and on-demand video will make the concert performance available in its entirety for viewing nationally and internationally. This represents unprecedented reach for a Choir and Orchestra concert performance—truly an Easter gift to the entire world.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is one of the only musical organizations of its kind that transcends cultural and generational boundaries and will unite people around the world this Easter through Messiah.
