The Tabernacle Choir will return after more than a year-long absence, as all events were stopped in March 2020 because of COVID-19.

Daily organ recitals, Choir, Orchestra and Bells events are all part of the Tabernacle Choir’s return and will be open to the public this year, according to a press release.

The first event open to the public in more than a year will be the daily organ recitals starting on July 19 at noon in the Tabernacle. The recitals take place Monday through Saturday at noon and Sundays at 2 p.m.

There will be a phased opening of Choir, Orchestra and Bells events. The Tabernacle Choir will begin rehearsals on Aug. 26, with the Bells starting Sept. 1. These rehearsals and broadcasts will be closed to the public until the second week in October. The Bells rehearsal will be the first one open to the public beginning on Oct. 6, and the Choir and Orchestra will host their first public rehearsal the following day.

The Choir is optimistic about performing a live Christmas concert in the Conference Center. Arrangements are still pending, and details will be confirmed at a later date, according to the release.
