The Mormon Tabernacle Choir recently performed in Arizona for the first time in more than 40 years.
The choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square joined the state of Arizona in celebrating 100 years of statehood on Feb. 10-11 in the U.S. Airways Center. Audiences got a surprise during each night's performance when dignitaries took the stage as guest conductors of the 360-member choir.
“We are thrilled to have the most prestigious choir in the world come to Arizona to celebrate our centennial with their legions of fans in our state,” said Karen Churchard, director of the Arizona Centennial Commission, according to a release from Mormonnewsroom.com.
Arizona Republic reporter Richard Nilsen wrote an article about the event. Read the Nilsen’s full story.
