The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is a large all-volunteer choir, the official choir of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormon church).

Called "America's Choir" by U.S. President Ronald Reagan, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is made up of 360 men and women, all Mormons and all living within close vicinity of the famous Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah. Choir members are not paid for their participation or performances. There are many husband-wife combinations and many families have participated in the choir for generations.

The choir was founded in August 1847, one month after the Mormon pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley. The choir is completely self-funded, traveling and producing albums to support their organization.

Since July 15, 1929, the choir has performed a weekly radio broadcast called Music and the Spoken Word, which is the longest-running continuous network broadcast in the world. The show has been televised since the early 1960s and is now broadcast worldwide through some 1,500 radio, television, and cable stations.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir's sound is often said to be world-famous, and instantly recognizable.
