We on the 'outside' of the Choir see only the smooth running operation
before us. And believe me, it is impressive. After learning a bit of the immense
amount of work involved in making that serenity happen weekly, I too wish to
thank Bro. Christensen for a calling well filled. I can only imagine the
intensity and stress involved here. How long did Bro. Christensen serve as the
Choir's president? Best of everything to you all involved in the
Choir's performances. If I lived in SL, I'm afraid I'd be very
tempted to be a Tabernacle Choir Mormon: Records in the Tabernacle Choir Ward ,
called to "listen" every Sunday from the same seat, etc. Best of
everything to the new president and thank you Mr. Mac.
Thanks, Mr. Mac, for your service. You have done an incredible job! Your name
seemed to be synonymous with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir!I have enjoyed seeing
you up close and personal on the choir trip programs on BYUtv. I can't even
imagine the hours you have put into this calling! Thanks again!
We wish Brother Jarrett nothing but the best and know he will perform his duties
as the Lord would want. Thank you Brother Christensen for your devotion and
your example. I know you will be missed but hope you will continue to enjoy good
health and strength.
I lived in SLC for a few years and was in the same ward as Mac. We were friends
and neighbors for that time...I remember him well. Such a kind, compassionate,
gentle man. I know there is something wonderful in his future and wish him well
in his next appointment. Job well done Mac.
I will second the comment made by Robb Cundick and equally welcome Bro. Jarrett.
Can't say enough about what a great job "President Mac" has done.
He seemed like such an unlikely pick at first but it was soon clear he'd be
super. What a great and generous leader he has been! I don't think
he'll manage to slow down, though. Maybe play more golf, President? And
welcome to Ron Jarrett! The Choir already knows and loves him.
