Richard Elliott, principal organist of the Tabernacle on Temple Square and senior accompanist of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, came to Jerusalem to play a special concert in celebration.
I have known Rick for 8 years through our association in the Choir, and I am grateful to count him as a friend. It has been great to spend time with him while he has been here, but listening to him "do his thing" tonight reminded me of all the times I have heard him play in the Tabernacle, in the Conference Center, and on various tours. He is a wonderful and gifted musician to be sure, but he is also a wonderful human being.
|Installed in 1987, the center's organ was built by the Marcussen Company of Denmark.|
