As a highlight of its "Hope Tour" in the Philippines this February 2024, The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square is set to grace the Interfaith Community with a performance scheduled at The Pontifical and Royal University of Santo Tomas (UST) in Manila.

UST is the oldest existing university in Asia. It was established in 1611 as the Colegio de Nuestra Senora del Santisimo Rosario and renamed Colegio de Santo Tomas in 1625. Its status was elevated to a university by the Vatican in 1645.
Similarly, The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra are among the oldest, largest, and most renowned choirs globally, representing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Founded 175 years ago, the group comprises 360 choir members and 110 orchestra members.
Choir members are unpaid volunteers who practice and perform every week. They form an award-winning choir that has traveled the globe, sold millions of records, and spread peace and hope worldwide.
The UST Interfaith Sacred Concert is a significant event of the Choir’s Philippines Tour this month. There are also announced concerts at the SM Mall of Asia Arena featuring Lea Salonga on February 27 and 28, 2024.
The purpose of interfaith relationships between religions is to build trust and lay the groundwork for charitable efforts. The spiritual and physical needs of the world require goodwill and cooperation among different faiths. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believe that each religious organization makes a valuable contribution to the larger community of believers.
