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.
@Irony GuyThe 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!
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?
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. Hinckleycalled 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 usalong 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.
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
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
