The Tabernacle Choir Resumes First In-Person Rehearsals Since the Beginning of the Pandemic

On Tuesday evening, members of The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square reunited at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City for their first in-person rehearsal in 19 months.

"We've been waiting for this for so long and we're anxiously ready for it, we're so ready to be here," said Staci Dame, a member of the Choir from Layton, Utah. 

Choir leadership paused rehearsals, performances and recordings when the pandemic began in March 2020. 

"There are so many steps that have been taken to make us feel safe, to make us feel at home, to make us feel like we can be in our element," said Dame. "We feel very lucky to be able to sing and to share our testimonies of the Savior."
