The Orchestra at Temple Square is an all-volunteer musical organization formed in 1999 at the direction of Gordon B. Hinckley, then President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its charter is to accompany the musical ensembles of the Tabernacle Choir organization and also to perform in concerts of its own.
The Temple Square Chorale was formed in 1999 as part of changes to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir organization, which included the creation of the Orchestra at Temple Square. The Chorale serves as a training ensemble for new members of the Tabernacle Choir. It is comprised of new members completing their audition process as well as those members who were new to the Choir the previous year plus a few other current Choir members to provide a complement of roughly 110 singers.
