Great rehearsal Thursday! Things are coming along and it’s going to be an awesome concert! Did you hear what President Monson said yesterday afternoon? I don’t remember his exact words but he thanked those with musical abilities for sharing them. Music brings the Spirit, uplifts the soul and communicates things that words often cannot. Anyways, I was really hoping you all heard that! You are soooooo appreciated!!!

This week’s schedule follows the past 2 rehearsal schedules so I’m going to post specific things you need to work on BEFORE Thursday. read more
