  • Anyone see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir last weekend?

    They had their annual Christmas concert last weekend. Richard Elliott did what was supposed to be an in-between numbers organ solo and ended up totally stealing the King's singers' thunder; he got by far the biggest applause. 22,000 people were practically screaming from their seats. For anyone who doesn't know, the organ in the LDS Conference Center is a new Schoenstein completed in 2003, with 130+ (I believe they've added at least 3 ranks since that number) ranks. Not sure if it was the 32' Diaphone or the 32' Trombone, but the building was shaking at the end. Was absolutely breathtaking.

    Can you divulge the additional stoops added since the organ was completed?

      Hi sesquialtera16,



      Now that I think of the numbers, I'm not sure if it was 3 ranks. I know that in 2004 the offical number of pipes was 7,667. Next I heard it was 7,708.



      See http://elliottrl.tripod.com/cc/spec.html for the specification.

        Actually, no, but I did watch them during Conference over the weekend . It is also my understanding that Richard Elliott has undergone arm surgery and will be forced to stay off the bench for 3 months, but I assume he'll be back in action for the next General Conference.

          Yes, he injured his arm, and had to have surgery to reattach the biceps. I understand he's hopeful to be back on the bench by Dec. 1 or so.
