Mormon Tabernacle Choir coming to Stadium July 3
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has entertained audiences all over the world and will add Yankee Stadium to its list of prominent venues as part of its Atlantic Coast Tour schedule this summer. The 360-person Choir will perform a brief medley of patriotic songs Friday, July 3, on the field at the Stadium before singing the national anthem prior to the start of the Yankees’ 7:05 p.m. game against the Rays.
The Choir, which was founded more than a century ago, has performed at World’s Fairs, inaugurations of United States presidents and in concert halls around the globe. It is dedicated to the universal language of music that has the power to bring joy, peace, and healing to listeners.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will embark on its 2015 Atlantic Coast tour June 24 through July 7, its first trek into the east coast in more than a decade. As part of this year’s tour, the group will visit Bethesda, Md., Bethel Woods, Saratoga Springs, New York City and Boston. Made up strictly of volunteers, the Choir typically tours just once every two years.
“The saying goes that there’s nothing more American than baseball and apple pie, and I would add, having America’s Choir lift its voices in patriotic songs to celebrate the birth of this great nation,” Mormon Tabernacle Choir president Ron Jarrett said. “It is an absolute thrill and honor for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to sing in such an iconic venue like Yankee Stadium for thousands of Yankees fans.”
