PROVO, Utah — If you want to commemorate the anniversary of the day the Mormon Pioneers first overlooked the Salt Lake Valley, you can do so from anywhere in the world. Stay at home and celebrate it with BYU Television, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Osmonds.
BYU Television will air the Pioneer Day Commemoration Concert, live from the LDS Conference Center on Temple Square on Saturday July 26, 2008, at 7:30 p.m. MDT, bringing this musical celebration to those who couldn’t get tickets or just don’t want to fight crowds on the holiday weekend — and also to church members who live in areas of the world that are far from church headquarters in Utah.
The special musical event is presented by the world famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square and will feature special guests the Osmonds.
Program highlights include a number of Pioneer Day favorites, classic American folk hymns and songs, and a variety of songs for which the Osmonds are famous. The evening also features a walk through the Osmonds’ musical legacy, with musical highlights and videos of performances from throughout their careers.
