Official Church Info

The Central Saints Chorus, an interfaith choir and orchestra in Oklahoma, held two free concerts over the weekend for victims of the May tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma. (See a news release about the Church’s relief efforts in Moore.)

The concerts’ theme was finding hope after loss, using the story of the Mormon pioneers’ journey to the Salt Lake Valley in the 1840s as a backdrop. Choir director and Mormon Zach Tanner told The Moore American that the choir chose the Mormon pioneer story because it’s about “a people who managed to find hope after everything was taken from them. They are forced to leave everything behind and build new lives, with just their faith to rely on.”
