Mormon Tabernacle Choir President Takes Final Bow
July 30, 2012
In June we noted that Ronald B. Jarrett was named as the new president of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, effective 1 August 2012. At the conclusion of last Sunday's broadcast of Music and the Spoken Word, the Choir sang "God Be With You Till We Meet Again" to outgoing choir president Mac Christensen, who served as president since 2000.
Under Christenesen's watch, the Choir toured North America, created its own recording label, appeared at prestigious music festivals from Chautauqua to Wolftrap, sang with the Boston Pops on Independence Day and expanded reach of the weekly Music and the Spoken Word broadcasts.
