Dear 100 Hour Board,
Who selects the music for General Conference? I feel like this would have been asked before but I couldn't find it in the archives, so... here it is.
The only thing I could find about it online was this blog which suggests that General Authorities sometimes request certain songs. But I haven't been able to find anything about who is in charge of the overall process. Can you shed any light?
Sorry for the delay in an answer; someone thought they had a contact they could ask, but it didn't end up working out. I looked around, but I wasn't able to find anything definitive. My guess would be that as director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Mack Wilberg chooses all the music. His bio on the Choir's homepage says that he's "responsible for all musical and creative aspects of the Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square in rehearsals, concerts, tours, and recordings, as well as the weekly broadcast of Music and the Spoken Word." Nothing on their page specifically mentions General Conference, but I would assume if he's the one in charge of all their music for literally everything else they do, he's also in charge of their music for General Conference.
If any of the readers have a more authoritative source for who chooses the music, please leave a correction!
