SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Joseph Smith's birth, the LDS church will invite 45-thousand teenagers to Rice-Eccles Stadium next month.

The July 16th celebration will bring together teens from Utah, Nevada and Wyoming to honor the legacy of the founder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

A choir of 16,000 voices will be on hand -- and thousands of dancers and flag bearers.

Church President Gordon B. Hinckley is expected to offer concluding remarks.

A live satellite broadcast will allow parents and family members to watch the program at church meeting houses in all three states.
