Mormon Tabernacle Choir to live-stream Easter ‘Messiah’ concerts

Even if you weren’t one of the lucky thousands who scored quickly gobbled-up tickets to the Easter weekend "Messiah" performances by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square, you’ll still be able to see and hear the concert — live.

"Overwhelming" demand for tickets to the free shows — set for April 18 and 19 at 7:30 p.m. in downtown Salt Lake City’s historic Tabernacle — prompted choir officials to plan two additional seating opportunities along with live-streaming of Handel’s legendary oratorio.

"Messiah" will be simulcast to the LDS Conference Center Little Theater both nights. Requests for these tickets will be fielded online at lds.org/events, starting March 18 at 6 p.m., according to a news release.

Both performances also will be simulcast to the Legacy Theater in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. These tickets will be available via random selection. More details are available at mormontabernaclechoir.org/messiah.

The largest audiences, however, will likely come from those viewing the show in their living rooms, offices or wherever they can get on the Internet. That’s because the concerts will be live-streamed on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s website and available on-demand — through April 21 — at mormontabernaclechoir.org/messiah and at YouTube.com/MormonTabChoir.

"The live stream and on-demand video will make the concert performance available in its entirety for viewing nationally and internationally," the release said. "This represents unprecedented reach for a choir and orchestra concert performance — truly an Easter gift to the entire world."
