UPDATE: Tickets were gone in less than an hour on Saturday for The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square’s Christmas concert with Emmy® and Tony® Award winning actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth.
For those who did not receive online tickets, there are still ways to see the concert. Watch the Choir’s website after Thanksgiving for details on a second chance ticket give-away contest. During the concert week, consider joining the standby line which will form at the north gate of Temple Square each night of the concerts. Patrons from the standby line will be seated in the Tabernacle to wait and taken to the Conference Center to fill empty seats as they are available. Standbys are often able to be seated in the Conference Center, but if not, the concert will be shown via closed circuit in the Tabernacle on big screens for patrons seated there.
