Register to Get Tickets for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert...

If you are thinking "Christmas...already?", I'm sure you are not alone. It is just after midnight, and I just registered for tickets for the "The Wondrous Gift of Christmas" event presented by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square. Registration for tickets began just a few minutes ago, and I am. It was easy, but the system was slow. I guess many other people had the same idea I did and were registering for the random drawing at the earliest possible moment.

This is so different from a few years ago. I recall one year all of my colleagues at work were all dialing from their office phones, and several of us were also doing the same thing with cell phones at the same time attempting to get tickets. One of us was fortunate enough to get through and we passed the phone around allowing everyone to register for tickets.

Well, there is such a demand, that a random selection process is now used......which makes sense as this free concert is performed by a world-class choir and orchestra. I am hopeful that we can get the tickets. Having been at these performances before......they were well worth the trip and the few complaints about having to wear church clothes on a weekday (made by my lovely children). If you would like to try for tickets, please see the information taken from,8197,726-1-740,00.html (Look in the upper right hand corner and clinic on the icon to register for tickets)
Celebrate the holiday season with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square in The Wondrous Gift of Christmas, conducted by Mack Wilberg. The concert will feature Grammy Award winner Natalie Cole and author David McCullough.
