Former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt will be the new president of the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square. Leavitt will replace Ron Jarrett, according to an announcement made by Bishop Gérald Caussé.
Leavitt will oversee over the 700 volunteers that make up the choir. One of his goals is to expand the choir’s worldwide reach and audience.
Caussé said Leavitt’s past leadership roles including governor, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator, and Health and Human Services Secretary prepared him to build on the choir’s legacy.
