SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Feb. 23, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — The world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir, immediately recognized by its familiar sight and angelic sound, is starring in the upcoming full length movie, “Singing with Angels.”
Although the choir has been featured in documentaries and concert DVDs, this is the first time it has participated in a story-driven movie. The full choir is shown in multiple scenes depicting rehearsals and performances. Several choir members fill important roles within the movie.
“This is epic,” said Brian Brough, the film’s director and producer. “Working with the choir has been amazing. We spent weeks reading through true stories that choir members sent us, evaluated each story, and found the ones that could be told on screen and would best fit the story we wanted to share.”
The film opens March 11, in Utah first and will then expand to other areas. Filmed on location at the Tabernacle on Temple Square and in conjunction with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the movie masterfully unites the true stories of the choir with the fictional character of Aubrey Larson.
The choir is led by president Ron Jarrett.
“Along with beautifully woven storytelling and directing, ‘Singing with Angels’ is about the journey of one woman who dreams of joining the choir and finding strength through trials and challenges in life,” said writer Brittany Wiscombe.
