LDS Sheet Music for Pioneer Day

July 24th marks Pioneer Day, commemorating the pioneers’ trek West and Brigham Young’s arrival into the Salt Lake Valley.

We love to hear about the Pioneer Day performances of Saints all around the country, celebrating not only the pioneers’ journey West but also modern pioneers in the gospel today. Is your ward or branch planning something special? If you are in need of ideas, here are four pieces we suggest as possible musical numbers.
