Standby seating will be available for the four Signature Series concerts presented by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square as part of the Cultural Olympiad of the 2002 Winter Games. No tickets will be needed.
A line for standby seating will form at the flag pole on Temple Square prior to each concert. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Reserved seating will be released 30 minutes prior to the performance. Once Tabernacle seating is filled, overflow seating will be provided in the Assembly Hall where the concerts will be shown on closed-circuit TV.
The Saturday evening Signature Series concerts will include a variety of world renowned artists:
- 9 February: Opera star Frederica von Stade, famed composer and conductor John Williams, the U.S. Army Herald Trumpets and the International Children’s Choir.
- 16 February: Acclaimed clarinetist Richard Stoltzman
- 23 February: Renowned six-man a capella ensemble king’singers
- 9 March: Grammy-winning percussionist Evelyn Glennie.
Standby seating will also available in the Tabernacle for the encore concerts which will be presented on Sunday mornings following each of the Signature Series concerts. Encore concerts on 10, 17 and 24 February and 10 March are not Cultural Olympiad events.
Each encore concert will be presented in conjunction with the Choir’s traditional Sunday morning broadcast of Music and the Spoken Word. Sunday morning concerts are expected to include much of the previous night’s Olympic performance. The standby line will form at the Temple Square flag pole. Overflow seating will be available in the Assembly Hall.
