The highly anticipated "Messiah" concert from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square will occur this Easter weekend on Friday and Saturday night.

The Choir announced additional options for viewing the Easter event after tickets for the live concert in the Tabernacle sold out on less than 10 minutes.

The rare event will be live streamed at MormonTabernacleChoir.org/Messiah on April 18 at 7:30 p.m. MDT, and a recording of the performance will be available on YouTube and on the Choir's website shortly after Friday's concert.
