Mormon Tabernacle Choir will launch its 2018 tour in Costa Mesa

The Philharmonic Society of Orange County announced a new addition to its 2017-18 season: the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square launching its 2018 tour.

The June 19 concert at Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa will mark the first stop of the choir and orchestra’s recently announced 2018 Classic Coast Tour.

The engagement marks the choir and orchestra’s first Orange County appearance since 2004, when they sold out three performances at Segerstrom Hall.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has performed around the world on television broadcasts, at inaugurations of U.S. presidents, in acclaimed concert halls and at world fairs and expositions.

The Orchestra at Temple Square was founded in 1999 and is a companion ensemble to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Tickets will go on sale in October.

Segerstrom Center for the Arts, Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall is at 615 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa. For more information, call (949) 553-2422 or visit philharmonicsociety.org.
