    They are good!!
    The tabernacle was surrounded by construction when we visited, but you could still hear the choir and they were fantastic! The kids were dreading it, but afterwards they also commented about how good the music had been. It was very easy to sit and listen. There was plenty of seating and it was comfortable. People were friendly and welcoming.

    Do the free organ recital!
    Attended the free organ recital at noon on Saturday. A wonderful way to see the beautiful building and organ, and take a quiet moment in the midst of travel business! Family of four (including teenager and 8 year old child) enjoyed!

    The performance gave me goose bumps
    We timed our visit perfectly. The organist was doing a 30 minute recital of music. It was a fabulous performance. The lighting and sound was a wonderful experience. Highly recommend visiting if you are in Salt Lake City

    Quick stop
    We visited the tabernacle when there was not a performance. The inside is a bit underwhelming. I’m sure it’s much better when there is a performance. We walked around the grounds and met two Mormon missionaries that were very friendly. Definitely stop by if you’re in SLC.

    A worthwhile free experience
    Worth a visit. Not suitable for young, noisy children. Great acoustics. Calm and cool (A/C) break from the heat outside. Nice to learn about history of their organs the Mormons too. Check recital times online. All very perfect.

    Organ Recital
    We went with the intention of seeing the organ recital and it did not disappoint. Lots of construction in Temple Square so was concerned about getting in because most of the block is gated, but we found our way. We had two missionaries speak us and they were very timid, sweet and asked us alot of questions about our selves in a way that was a nice convo, not forced. The organist was amazing, the pieces were picked to show off the organ and it was incredible. Loved the lights as well. Recommend to all.

We went expecting to see very little of The Tabernacle but this was not the case at all. We got to walk all over the grounds and even go to a practice session of the choir. It was simply beautiful.

The Salt Lake Temple is closed for safety and seismic renovations. In the Tabernacle there was a person playing the organ and it sounded great. A woman guide told us about the building. Fantastic sound.

We visited the Tabernacle while in SLC for business. The place is incredible and the ushers were very friendly and helpful. If you are lucky you will hear the organist practice and the sound is incredible. Must see in SLC

We went to a half hour long, free organ recital at midday. It was lovely! Worth popping in to if you're in the area. They have nice lights!

Amazing!! Beautiful! Inspirational!! The Tabernacle choir was all of these and more! My favorite was the pipe organ. The space itself is jaw-dropping and the performance is so moving. Would recommend that everyone do it at least once!!
