Travel Tips for Independence

AUDITORIUM ORGAN RECITALS

by mtncorg

There seems to be something about Mormons and organs. The LDS maintain two huge organs in Salt Lake City - one and the tabernacle and another at the General Conference Center. The little brother RLDS/Community of Christ has two large organs as well, one in the Auditorium and the other in the Temple. Both organs are different - Aeolian-Skinner of Boston installed the Auditorium’s organ in 1959 - they had also extensively re-worked the Tabernacle’s organ in 1948 - and Casavant Freres of Quebec did the Temple’s organ. Each organ has a definitely different sound, with different workings. Due to the organ and to the larger size of the Auditorium, the organist has to be aware of a time delay in input and output that is not a problem with the Temple’s organ. The sounds of each are magnificent and you can attend daily recitals in the summer (June - August) at 3 pm and on Sundays at 3 pm the rest of the year. The place of the recitals switches back and forth between the two buildings. Recitals are shared by a staff of some 30+ organists who enjoy to talk about the instruments and the specific challenges each offers at the end of the recitals.

COMMUNITY OF CHRIST MUSEUM

by mtncorg

Located on the ground floor of the Community of Christ Temple, the Museum displays many important exhibits from both early Mormon history and from the history of the RLDS/Community of Christ church including the 1976 Missouri statute which rescinded a 1838 order issued by the then Missouri governor Lilburn Boggs to drive out of the State or exterminate all Mormons. There is also a bookstore/gift shop associated with the museum
