7:30 pm New !!! We just found out that the Tabernacle Choir will have a short mini-concert on Thursday at 7:30, just prior to their normally scheduled 8:00 pm rehearsal. At the end of the concert, you can elect to stay for the rehearsal or move on to other activities for the evening.
8:00 - 9:30 pm: Tabernacle Choir Rehearsal. Most visitors to Salt Lake City consider this to be a "must see" event. See description on the Activities link, below. The rehearsal and the Sunday broadcast are free and open to the public so no advance sign-up is necessary. The Tabernacle is located about a 3 minute walk from the hotel.
Friday, May 20, 2011
8:30 -9:30am - "Who are these Mormons, anyway?" As many of you know, the history of Salt Lake City and of Utah has long been associated with the history of the LDS, or Mormon, church. With the recent - and now possibly future - candidacy of Mitt Romney, there has been renewed interest in this peculiar religion. For those interested, Kent Price will give a brief overview of the church describing some of its history and a few basic beliefs. This will be a non-proselyting, non-missionary oriented discussion focused mainly on answering questions.
Hospitality Room open all day.
During the day - Activities of your choice. Some suggestions include: Hill Aerospace Museum, Park City, Snowbird Resort, The beautiful "Alpine Loop/Cascade Springs" Drive (weather and road conditions permitting). See Activities link, below.
7:00 pm - Our traditional Banquet with short program.

We'll keep the hospitality room open until noon as long as desired.
