Tab Likely Asked to Perform for 2002 Olympics

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The producer hired by the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the opening ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games says that the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will likely be asked to perform. "We want to use them for sure. There's no question," said DOn Mischer, whose company will produce the Salt Lake opening ceremony. But other details of the show, including what role the LDS Church will play in the opening ceremony, either have not yet been decided or are secret to preserve surprises for the audience.

Mischer did say it is not likely that the show will include a segment on the LDS Church. Nor, he says, will it be a historical pageant. The Sydney show was noted for its portrayal of Australian history from aboriginal times to modern suburbia.

Both Mischer and SLOC President Mitt Romney say they aren't trying to top Sydney's opening ceremony. Instead, they want to present a "winter wonderland," warmed by local hospitality.
