If --for some reason-- the Conference Center is NOT available to use for this concert, the MoTC should simply announce that fact, and rationally EXPLAIN the situation, rather than just keeping the public in the dark!

Same goes for why they CAN'T seem to broadcast the concert on BYUTV.?? The public have been clamoring and begging for this option on numerous prior occasions, and the Church just completely IGNORES this request, and never offers an explanation as to WHY NOT.

And finally.... I'm STILL anxiously waiting (along with hundreds of thousands of others) to see the James Taylor concert (from last Fall) on DVD or BYUTV or online!! But once again, we never hear ANYTHING.

The MoTC still has a long way to go in improving it's PR. 8^)

Please, consider broadcasting on BYU channel.

I hadn't realized that this concert WOULDN'T be taking place in the Conference Center? Why ever not? It seems obvious that it should. As well as, over BYUTV! In the spirit of Pres. Hinckley ( and Pres. Monson, I think ) Make It So!

I just hope that this is "straight up" Messiah and not tinkered with or embellished as the Choir and Orchestra leaders are want to do these paste several years. I am praying for awe inspiring purity, simplicity and faithfulness to the original scores.

Oh, how I pray!

Bravo for using the Tabernacle for a Mormon TABERNACLE Choir concert. Aside from conferences, feel the MTC belongs in this older namesake venue with the better acoustics. so disagree with those commenting it should be moved to the Conference Center.

But fully agree it should be broadcast live and on demand on BYU-TV.

My wife and I agree wholeheartedly with the suggestion to, if possible, make the concert available on BYUTV. We have many non-member neighbors who love to see and hear the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on BYUTV and this would be a REALLY GREAT MISSIONARY TOOL!

By the way, many moons ago, while I was yet a young boy living with my parents in Utah, my dad who was then a non-member and a worker for the company which re-roofed the Tabernacle! He talked about it fondly for many years.
