Wow! Wish I could have been one of the lucky few selected for tickets to this concert. I hope that this will someday be available for viewing by the rest of us. I wonder whether he'll be performing his ballad "Steamroller" with the choir. Oh well, I'll just have to wait for the DVD.

In the 70's I was aware of and liked JT's music, but not passionately. In the early 90's I bought the New Moon Shine CD, because I liked Copperline. When I first listened to the rest of the CD, I thought 'What have I done?' However, after 2-3 times, I started to get it. In the next months I was hooked on every thing he did. I don't know why it clicked with me but his always singular and often quirky music drew me in. It's amazing how he puts the music together and still performs, perhaps better than ever, in recent years.

We were lucky enough to see Audra McDonald last night at BYU, what an amazing concert. We gave away our Tanner Gift of Music tickets since we didn't want a letdown after last night!

Maple Don referred to an up coming DVD of the performance. I hope that's true that there
will be a DVD of James Taylor with the Choir. I did not see any reference to a DVD in the news story. We mentioned in a comment yesterday in another story on the DN website that we, who live outside of Utah, kind of feel "left out" of these events if they are NOT
put on the BYU-TV channel. When BYU-TV came to be (about a dozen years ago), it was understood that this would bring the "Events of Utah" to a World-Wide audience, since much
of the LDS Church members live well beyond the Watsatch Front and the borders of the state of Utah. Over the years (especially the last few) this idea seems to have faded. BYU-TV is now loaded with an number of "Canadian Television" re-runs and there's not room for the Pioneer Day Parade or this Mormon Tabernace Choir performance with one of "America's" great singers??

It would be nice to see this (even delayed) over BYU-TV. If not, when will the DVD be available?

Thank You.
