The First Music Festival in the Church

The LDS Church is famous for its festivals. Usually the evening prior to a temple being dedicated we can expect one such festival. When was the first festival held in the Church?
a.                  1831 in Kirtland, Ohio
b.                  1877 in St. George, Utah
c.                   1890 in Salt Lake City
d.                  1892 in Salt Lake City
Yesterday’s answer:
b.   The Ogden Brass Band
The band was often called to Salt Lake City by Brigham Young to play at the general conferences of the Church.
