The Mormon Tabernacle Choir isn’t always known for being cutting-edge, but all of that is about to change. They’ve just launched an outstanding project that will allow you to join the choir in singing Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus.” Officially posted on Mormon.org, the choir says:
Calling all singers and choirs worldwide—now you can virtually join the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for an amazing rendition of Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus.” It’s easy—check out the instructional videos below, pick your part, and upload a video of yourself to YouTube. Deadline for submissions is Tuesday, March 1.
To help you along, Peter and Evynne Hollens sing all of the parts in separate videos that you can follow along with. As non-members, the Hollens represent how Christians can come together to celebrate this great testimony of Christ. Watch the instructional video above, but make sure to click here in order to send your video in and access all the music.
The project is in conjunction with the Church’s Easter media initiative, which will be released in March. LDS Daily got a sneak peek and will be excited to share the campaign with you when it goes live! Make sure to share this project with any of your musically-inclined friends, though anyone can be involved if they love to sing!
