American Samoans Enjoy Handel's Messiah

Some sang along while others just listened, but all enjoyed

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their friends gathered in American Samoa earlier this week to watch the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square's latest rendition of Handel's Messiah.

Michael Lavea, President of the Aua Stake (a group of congregations) of the Church commented: "It's wonderful music ... and we don't get that much exposure to this kind of music often, so it was a wonderful concert to watch."


Until April 9 the Choir and Orchestra's performance can be viewed here.
