'Mr. Mac' New Head Of MoTab

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- F. MacRay Christensen, known to Salt Lake City residents and thousands of former LDS missionaries as "Mr Mac" is the new president of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, succeeding Wendell M. Smoot. Like his predecessor, Christensen will be the administrative manager of the Choir, helping to negotiate recording contracts and arranging Choir tours.

Sunday, when LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley introduced Christensen and his wife Joan to the Choir, he also paid tribute to Smoot, who has served as president of the Choir since 1983. During that time, Smoot has led the Choir in about 850 performances and multiple tours. Hinckley said Smoot "deserves special commendation" for his service.

Christensen is a Salt Lake City clothing retailer well-known for being a standard stop for LDS missionaries entering the MTC. A native of Ephraim, Utah, Christensen attended Snow College and lives in Bountiful, Utah. He was also served on the boards of directors of the Utah State Fair, Tracy Collins Bank, State Savings &Loan and Amicus, a fundraising group supporting LDS Hospital.

Recently, Christensen and his wife completed an LDS mission, serving as the director of the Washington DC Temple Visitor's Center.
