MoTab Houston Performance Will Happen Tonight

HOUSTON, TEXAS -- After days of scrambling for a new place for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to perform, Houston's Society for the Performing Arts managed to find a place for the choir to sing. The previous venue, Jones Hall, was flooded this past weekend in heavy storms that also flooded other major theaters in downtown Houston, making it difficult to find alternative venues. Tonight's concert will now be held in the Reliant Arena (called the Astroarena in the Deseret News) at 8pm.

The SPA had cancelled the concert on Wednesday because it couldn't find an alternate site, but the choir's technical staff looked at the Reliant Arena Thursday morning and decided the concert could be produced there, according to SPA executive director Toby Mattox.

Following the concert, the choir will move on to Fort Worth, Texas, where it will perform in Bass Hall. Those that have made other plans because of the cancellation can get a refund from the SPA for tickets purchased to hear the choir.
