The Sterling Singers is made up entirely of volunteers from Utah's Wasatch Front. Its over 300 active singers range in ages 14 to over 70. The choir was founded in 1994 by Sterling Brimley with only 30 singers. Over the years, the choir flourished and grew to its present size. The Sterling Singers perform several gratis concerts annually in venues, including the Salt Lake Tabernacle, Libby Gardner Concert Hall at the University of Utah, and Abravanel Hall.
A highlight of the choir's activities is a traditional Christmas concert. Past performances have included a concert of Dr. Crawford Gates' works, as well as the debut of his original opera, Joseph! Joseph!; the Requiems of Brahms, Rutter and Fauré; John Rutter's Gloria and Magnificat; the 150th Commemoration of the Mormon Battalion; Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with the Lyceum Philharmonic Orchestra, among others. In 2013, the Sterling Singers performed in the LDS Conference Center with Jackie Evancho, international child protégé, along with other nationally known artists. In 2015, the choir received an invitation to Open the Christmas Season by performing in the Salt Lake Tabernacle on Temple Square singing favorite Christmas tunes. The choir is also frequently invited to sing sacred musical selections in various LDS Worship Services and Choirsides.
