We Also Sing!

For the past two years, I have sung with a choir called "We Also Sing!" It is comprised of 364 women from Logan to Ephraim. That's a ton of women, both literally and figuratively, but we perform our concerts in the Tabernacle and that's how many choir seats there are, so that's how many women we have. I know it's cheesy, but I love singing in this choir. Merrilee Webb is the conductor and she is absolutely amazing. For those who saw, she conducted the YW choir for the General YW broadcast this year. I know that those girls had an amazing experience. I love how Merrilee instills emotion and excitement to her choirs. They sing with happiness on their faces and I know it is also in their hearts. I also love how she weaves life lessons throughout the rehearsals. I leave rehearsals wanting to be a better person. I have tried to do this with my private piano students also. Yes, it's a women's choir, yes, it's sometimes cheesy, yes, it's sometimes a pain to drag yourself to rehearsal on Sunday nights, but I feel it is so worth it. I would like to extend an invitation to any women who would like to join so that you can experience the joy! This is honestly a choir that you will look forward to rehearsing with. Plus you'd be able to be with ME! And 363 of my closest friends, of course. Rehearsals start in late August on Thursday nights for six weeks, then switch to Sunday nights for the next five. There are two concerts in the Salt Lake Tabernacle on Saturday, November 5th. You can read more about it by clicking here to read the choir blog. (Are you impressed with my link-embedding skills? I just learned how to do it and am quite proud of myself.) And if you want to talk to me about it (the choir or the link-embedding), just call or email me. This is a picture of me climbing the stairs up to the tabernacle choir loft for last year's concert. Can't you see how much fun I'm having?!

No wonder I didn't recognize that outfit! I remember Merrilee from a music conference in Boise once years ago. She is very memorable. If I lived in that area I would absolutely drag myself to rehearsal with you every Sunday night!

You could come visit every week! That would be fun! And about the outfit, yes, everybody gets to make and wear a lei for the big performance. It's not my favorite feature of the choir, but its an endearing one.
