Mormon Tabernacle Choir to Change its Name
MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR CHANGES ITS NAME AFTER MORE THAN 150 YEARS
(CNN) – The Mormon Tabernacle choir is no more… At least by name.
The choir is changing its name after more than 150-years.
It will now be known as “The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square.”
The Tabernacle on Temple Square is the name of the building the choir has been singing in since 1867.
The name change comes as the church moves away from the nickname “Mormon.”
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has officially stopped using LDS and Mormon as shortened references.
