Las Vegas Review Journal

What's wrong with this picture: the Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs Tuesday in a "Sin City" resort? Absolutely nothing, according to the choir's music director, Craig Jessop. This isn't the first time the choir has played Las Vegas. Seven or eight times in the past, in fact. But never at a gambling resort. "The Orleans Arena seemed to be the largest suitable venue for this performance," Jessop said in a phone interview. The multipurpose arena is separate from The Orleans casino and hosts concerts and sports events. Meanwhile, the 360-singer all-volunteer choir is in the city to be inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters' Hall of Fame in honor of its 75-year radio program, "Music and the Spoken Word."
