Utah Choir Tour!

SO this tour was AMAZING!!! so many awesome things happened!! We went for 5 days-and just had a blast. We did exchanges with about 6 schools I think, including BYU singers and YOUNG AMBASSADORS! We also gave a performance in the provo tabernacle and unexpectedly got to sing in the Salt Lake tabernacle after we attended the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's performance of "The Spoken Word." The guy who worked for the Mo tab said in his 17 years he has never seen a group be able to do that, NEVER. So we felt really privledged they let us go up there and sing after. There were so many other amazing experiences there that I wont be able to remember-actually a lot of spiritual ones. It was great! The bus ride was sooo long but I made so many new friends! We played cards and other games the whole time so it actually went by way fast!



This is our lil group from the 5 days! We played games non-stop...seriously though, everyone came to sit by us so they could play. ha thats how i met lots of choir friends.

I LOVE THOSE GLASSES!!! BUUUUUT, i left them at the YOUNG AMBASSADORS concert-im so sad!





This is us playing cards-we did it almost every night seriously!


Ok one night we got bored.........................keep looking. We took tons of sweet pics like this.

Any trip to Utah would be fun! Ok, I may be a little bias. Sounds like a blast. That is cool that you are in choir. That is also very cool about singing in the tabernacle. The Spoken Word is so great to see in person. We usually watch it on Sunday mornings at home, but to see it in person is even better.
