Members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square are headed west for their 2018 tour. The choir will perform in five cities in California, Washington and Vancouver, Canada, next summer. The Classic Coast Tour begins on Monday, June 18, and will conclude 16 days later, Tuesday, July 3, 2018.

“When we experience great music in great spaces, it makes for a great experience — both for the audience and the performer as well,” said Mack Wilberg, choir music director.
Ron Jarrett, president of the choir, added, “There is nothing quite like hearing the choir and orchestra live in concert and experiencing their signature all-encompassing sound. We love going on the road to connect with our audiences and seeing firsthand the pure joy music can bring to the hearts and minds of our fans.”

Music for the Classic Coast Tour concerts will include choral masterworks, inspirational music from around the world, American folk hymns and spirituals and more.


The 2018 Classic Coast Tour performances will begin on Tuesday, June 19, with a concert in Costa Mesa, California, at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Choir members performed in 2004 at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, but this will their first performance in this new concert hall, built since their last visit.

The next stop will be in Mountain View for a concert at the Shoreline Amphitheatre on Monday, June 25. The choir and orchestra will wrap up the California leg of their tour in the community of Rohnert Park on Wednesday, June 27, with a concert at Weill Hall at the Green Music Center on the campus of Sonoma State University.

The Choir anticipates adding other California appearances to the Classic Coast Tour with announcements to follow in the near future.

The choir and orchestra will be crossing over into Canada for a concert at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Saturday, June 30. The choir previously performed in Vancouver in 1962 and 1986.

The tour wraps up on Monday, July 2, with a visit to Seattle, Washington, with a performance at the S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium at Benaroya Hall. The choir first visited Seattle over a century ago as part of its 1909 Alaska-Yukon Pacific Exposition Tour and has returned for four other performances, most recently in 2005.
