“The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has a great tradition of performing at the inaugurals of U.S. presidents,” said Ron Jarrett, president of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. “Singing the music of America is one of the things we do best. We are honored to be able to serve our country by providing music for the inauguration of our next president.”
The choir has previously sung at the inaugurals of five other U.S. presidents, including the official swearing-in ceremonies for George H. W. Bush (1989), Richard M. Nixon (1969) and Lyndon B. Johnson (1965). They performed in inaugural parades for George W. Bush (2001), George H. W. Bush (1989) and Ronald W. Reagan (1981) according to a news release by Mormon Newsroom.
The choir also performed for five additional U.S presidents. The choir sang for Jimmy Carter in the Salt Lake Tabernacle (1978) and John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford in the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. (1974), and a performance in the White House for Dwight D. Eisenhower and an occasion for William Howard Taft in 1911.
