"We have had some great experiences since getting our call in August for a service mission the the Tabernacle Choir. We serve 3-4 times a week and most recently at the Christmas Concert. Our assignment was to oversee the dancers. It was our job to have them in position to go on stage. From the back of the auditorium or up top (stage) or along the sides, we had to make sure they were all there and ready to go on. It was a GREAT experience with GREAT kids!
"Next we got to help with the inauguration of Governor Herbert in January at the State Capitol. We had to take risers (24 of them) into the capitol. It takes at least four men to carry one riser--and they had to take them up three flights to the rotunda. It was a lot of work!!! We also had to take in everything for the orchestra (65 chairs, stands, timpani, bass, harps, keyboard, chimes, etc.).
"I will never forget hearing the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" as it echoed through the rotunda. FABULOUS!
"We are now looking forward to going on tour with the choir and orchestra in June."
