LDS Conference Center – Salt Lake City Tours
The LDS Conference Center across from Temple Square is one of the largest religious auditoriums in the world. Seating capacity in the main auditorium is 21,000. The Conference Center is used for large meetings, Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsals and concerts during the peak visitor seasons, and for theatrical productions. Made of the same stone from the same location as the Salt Lake Temple across the street, the Conference Center was completed in 2000. Open daily for guided tours both inside the building as well as on the roof, where a large garden was placed to absorb sunlight and help keep the building cooler in the summer. Thursday evening is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsal, with doors typically opening to the public at 7:30 PM. Sunday morning is the Choir’s concert, Music and the Spoken Word, with doors opening at 8:25 AM and the 30-minute broadcast beginning at 9:30 AM. Many days of the summer, the Conference Center offers a 2:00 PM organ recital open to the public.
