Mormon church showing Tabernacle choir, orchestra concerts today, Saturday

The Fairfield chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will show the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra concerts on a big screen at 8:30 p.m. today and Saturday.

Community members are invited to attend.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra will present Handel’s Messiah.

The choir is one of the only musical organizations of its kind that transcends cultural and generational boundaries and unites people around the world.

The concerts also will be live-streamed on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s website and available on-demand at mormontabernaclechoir.org/messiah and at YouTube.com/MormonTabChoir during the Easter weekend.

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

The Fairfield chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will have a regular service and Easter program at 10 a.m. Sunday.
