Easter 2013 – “Lamb of God”

We are excited to announce that the Minnesota Mormon Chorale & Orchestra will again be performing the beautiful Easter oratorio Lamb of God by Rob Gardner, on Sat. March 23 & Sun. March 24th, 2013. The oratorio features the choir & orchestra, 13 vocal soloists, 1 cello soloist, and 2 narrators. The oratorio not only tells the Easter story of the final days of the Savior’s earthly ministry, but also tells each person’s view of those very special events, from Peter’s denial and real testimony of Jesus to Mary’s understanding of the blessedness of His sacrifice. Jesus Christ is not portrayed by a singer on the stage, instead a cello soloist represents the Savior in the music, helping us feel His presence and spirit throughout. Read more

April Fools

Hey everyone!

Thanks for being such good sports about the April Fools joke tonight! For those who missed it, a guy that no one knows (except Marilyn) came in and acted extremely annoying…to the point where he actually started giving me conducting tips!!! (By the way, he’s a really nice guy and it was super nice of him to do this for me). I really thought you all could see right through the joke….but as soon as I saw how upset Larry was, I knew I scored! But I also felt bad about it because he was clearly upset. (Thanks dad for taking up for me! You ROCK! I couldn’t make eye contact with you the whole time b/c I figured you knew what was going on and I was afraid to blow it!) Read more
