About the Actor
The 360 members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir represent men and women from many different backgrounds and professions and range in age from 25 to 60. They reflect a medley of unique lives and experiences and are brought together by their love for singing and their faith. Their incomparable voices are the common chord that unites to form the choral group known all over the world as the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir originated in the mid-19th century in Salt Lake City. As the Latter-day Saints moved west, Church President Brigham Young included musicians among members of the advance parties. Consequently, a small choir first sang for a conference of the Church in the Salt Lake Valley on August 22, 1847, just 29 days after the first group arrived. The origins of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir may be found in the desire and commitment of early converts to include appropriate music in both sacred and secular events. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has appeared at 13 world s fairs and expositions, performed at the inaugurations of five U.S. presidents, and sung for numerous worldwide telecasts and special events. Five of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir s recordings have achieved gold record and two have achieved platinum record status. The most popular was the Grammy-Award-winning 1959 release of The Battle Hymn of the Republic with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

As for myself, I had already planned to enjoy the concert, but the performances took by storm even my high expectations.
Alfie Boe's voice is so strong and then backed by the Choir and Orchestra is magnificent. I highly recommend it. You will watch it over and over.
a pilot that did some amazing things for some German Children during a war. It was a very heartwarming story to hear at Christmas time. The
music is wonderful!
