Basketball…and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Wait, what? Many people might not realize it, but the Choir has a history with the NBA that dates back to when they first performed the national anthem at a Utah Jazz game in 2001. With the NBA season tipping off tonight, we thought we’d take a moment to share some of the Choir’s basketball history.
For the opening of the 2001–2002 season, the Choir performed a pre-game 9/11 tribute ceremony at the Delta Center (later renamed Energy Solutions Arena).
