The tabernacle is known as the home of the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir and its impressive organ with 11,623 pipes. Visitors can tour the dome-shape building and hear organ recitals daily. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, organ recitals are held Monday through Saturday at noon and 2 and Sunday at 2. The rest of the year, recitals are held Monday through Saturday at noon and Sunday at 2. Visitors are also welcome on Thursday from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm to listen to the
choir rehearse Sunday hymns and from 9:30 am to 10 am as the choir performs for the world's longest-running continuous network broadcast, Music and the Spoken Word.

The Tabernacle is part of the Mormon Temple Square complex, and very interesting architecturally. Acoustics are first rate, and the inside is attractive, if a bit spartan. Be sure you see it during the tour of this area.
