Elder Chappell said that they were encouraged to take this step of outreach towards the LGBT community because they knew that the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (now the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square) held a joint concert last year in California with the Gay Men’s Chorus of San Francisco. Sister Chappell added that when they approached the Missionary Department about this idea, they were very supportive and saw the performance as a way “to welcome all of God’s children into this building and have them feel loved and accepted and valued and included.” The Chappells’ hope is that this concert is an outreach of love and a warm connection through music for all of us.
