Mormon Tabernacle Choir To Perform at Presidential Inauguration

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will be singing at the swearing-in ceremony during the presidential inauguration, church officials said.

The ceremony will take place on Jan. 20th.

This isn’t the first time the choir has sang at a presidential inauguration. In fact, during the inaugural parade for President Reagan in 1981 he referred to the choir as “America’s Choir”.

“Singing the music of America is one of the things we do best. We are honored to be able to serve our country by providing music for the inauguration of our next president,” President of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Ron Jarrett said.

The choir previously performed at five other swearing-ceremonies: George H. W. Bush (1989), Richard M. Nixon (1969) and Lyndon B. Johnson (1965) and they performed in inaugural parades for George W. Bush (2001), George H. W. Bush (1989) and Ronald W. Reagan (1981).
