The Happy medley was my least favorite of the night, we've heard better from the Choir! The rest of the show was fantastic, we really enjoyed being in the crowd!

I was "Team Hans" all the way, even when it was revealed he was a bad guy. This is the real world, people. Rich and mean beats nice poor mountain guy any day!

According to the BYU-TV program guide, this year's Pioneer Day concert will be shown again on
July 24th. That's Good!!

BYU-TV used to also ahow the "Days of '47 Parade", which the late President Gordon B. Hinckley
called Pioneer Day: "Our Special Holiday".

Channel 5 KSL in Salt Lake City does not reach beyond Utah very much, if at all. A number of us
along the Pacific Coast and elsewhere around the World kind of feel left out when it comes to having access to seeing the Pioneer Day Parade. Even on a "delayed" basis, it would be nice to have access.

Seems rather Selfish on the part of KSL-TV and/or BYU-TV to leave people OUT of the Equation of
Participating and Celebrating in the LDS Culture, History, and Tradition.

There was a time when the Mormon Tabernacle Choir was a great vehicle of the greatest of classical music. Today it is little more than a slap-happy bubble-gum group. Where are the great Messiah recordings and the "Lord's Prayer" recordings of yesterday?

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir's new recording of Messiah, recorded just a few months ago, will be released in Spring 2015. The upcoming Christmas CD includes music by Bach, Tchaikovsky, and Rimsky-Korsakov. Don't get yourself all twisted up just because one medley from one concert was designed to appeal to listeners who like music that you may not care for. The MoTabs are the furthest thing from a "slap-happy bubble-gum group," but as its director often says, they "sing for everyone." Can't fault them for that!

Great concert. So much fun and it was enjoyable to see my daughter, nieces and nephews enjoy the concert as much as I did as an adult.
