We Also Sing.....

Last night was the first rehearsal for the choir that I joined a few months back. Its a long story but to recap, I was looking for information on my Jr. High School choir teacher and found that she was directing this choir which just so happened to be accepting people at the time that I found it. I joined right away and am so glad that I did. There were 364 women at this rehearsal last night and you should have heard the sound! Wow. Im going to have to work on singing without crying because it was so powerful. I think this is going to be an amazing experince for me and I really feel like it wasnt a coincidence that I found it.

As for my choir teacher.....I talked to her afterward and Im sure she doesnt remember me but thats OK. She has taught thousands of students throughout the years and, HELLO, its been nearly 24 years since I was in her class....WOW. She was true to form and everything that I remembered too. She always chose songs that we thought were impossible to sing, but then of course we could in the end. There are some songs on the program that I was blown away by and Im thinking Im never going to be able to get it. But I will and it will be great! Our concert will be held in the Tabernacle on Temple Square which is exciting in and of itself...... I cant wait!

So, when is your concert? We need details. You never know when you are going to be in Utah, right?
