The Sabbath has been a welcome respite after being on the run all of the last week. The choir was divided between several LDS wards, attending church meetings with their host families. Some lucky Singers were able to sleep in a little longer before church at 11, but I’m sure the ones who went at

Saturday, April 25 was the choir’s Bon Voyage Concert. We are in the last days of meetings, rehearsals, and learning about the culture and history of the countries we are to visit VERY soon! In between all of that, we are fitting in last minute shopping and (I hope!) packing. And many members of the

April 10 & 11 BYU Singers combined with Women’s Chorus, Men’s Chorus and Concert Choir–and also the Philharmonic Orchestra–to perform a filmed concert that will be broadcast on TV at a date yet to be announced. There needs to be just a little editing done first!

In November 2007, BYU Singers and Concert Choir combined with the University of Utah choirs and orchestra to perform William Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. This photograph is of the dress rehearsal prior to the BYU campus performance that was filmed for future broadcast on BYU-TV. That broadcast performance will showcase the

On January 11 & 12, BYU Singers recorded several pieces for a new Eric Whitacre CD. BYU Concert Choir joined in “Her Sacred Spirit Soars,” a composition for double choir. The recording sessions were in BYU’s Museum of Art, which has wonderful acoustics. All lights were turned down to avoid all possible noise–hence the dark
