Called by some as “a missionary choir like no other,” the 364-voice ensemble singing at the Saturday afternoon session of October 2022 general conference featured teaching missionaries, service missionaries, and senior missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The missionaries ranged in age from 18 years into the 80s. The 140 teaching missionaries are currently assigned to the Provo Missionary Training Center and preparing for assignments across the world. The remaining service and senior missionaries are serving assignments along Utah’s Wasatch Front, from Weber County to Utah County.

Elder Marcus B. Nash, a General Authority Seventy and executive director of the Missionary Department, said the blending of voices and visual appearance of the missionaries together was both purposeful and meaningful. “The members of this choir—proselyting, service and senior missionaries—joined together to sing in a way that uplifted and inspired us all,” he told the Church News. “Speaking metaphorically, each missionary is a vital voice in the ‘choir’ of missionary service, each lending spirit and strength as they join in singing the song of redeeming love to a world in dire need of the redemptive power of Christ.”
