The Mormon Tabernacle Choir started out in 1847 on a rather small scale lacking a certain discipline. In 1869, however, following the appointment of new conductor George Careless, the Choir began to improve musically, and it was under him that its first big choir came to being assembled with the addition of smaller choral bands to the Salt Lake Choir. The resulting larger choir, which consisted of more than three-hundred, performed at the General Conference in October 1873, at which point it started matching the scale of the grand Tabernacle. By September 1910, it sang the track Let Mountains Shout for Joy, marking their first recording with three hundred members from its total of six hundred.
In the later years of its development, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s directors brought in more concrete vocal training while also working on raising its standards. Alongside, the Choir started getting better as an ensemble, increasing its then narrow repertoire from just a hundred songs to almost a thousand. In 1929, it made its first ever radio broadcast that came to be called Music and Spoken Word. After two more decades, it has player a host of concerts on yearly basis and had also issued its debut long-playing recording. During the fifties, it toured across Europe for the first time during which it won a Grammy Award for the recording Battle Hymn of Republic. In the following years, the Choir was fortunate to gain dedicated directors who continued to refine its sound and add to its repertoire.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has had the honor of performing before each president of the USA starting with Sir William Howard Taft. In addition it has also played at the Presidential inaugurations for Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, as well as George W. Bush. It has performed at more than twenty occasions on the Winter Olympics of 2002 in Salt Lake City, while also performing on the opening ceremony.
