The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square held a live rehearsal Tuesday for the first time in 19 months. The 19-month gap is the longest in the choir's 174-year history.
New choir president and former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt says he wanted to make sure their return to the stage was done correctly and safely. Under Leavitt’s safety plan, all performers must be vaccinated, they must self-report sickness or exposure and they will each be tested before each rehearsal and performance.
The choir’s first live performance is scheduled for the upcoming General Conference the first weekend of October.
