The group was joined by guest artist and baritone Shea Owens, director of opera at Brigham Young University.
“The concert’s music and message (entitled ‘Love Your Neighbor: A Tabernacle Choir Special Event’) will emphasize the Savior’s Second Commandment: ‘Love Your Neighbor.’ We hope to help those who watch and listen to feel closer to God, experience his love, and feel inspired to share that love with others,” Leavitt said.
Another concert is scheduled for Saturday evening. You can attend in person or stream it at 8 p.m. MT on the Church’s YouTube channel, website, and stream page.
“In keeping with tradition, the July performance opens with songs and a short tribute to Latter-day Saint pioneers to commemorate the 175th anniversary of their arrival in the Salt Lake Valley,” a press release from the Church of Jesus Christ of the Last Days. the saints of the day declared.
