Two weeks driving around Colorado has come to an end. BYU Singers’ tour was a great success. We performed a concert almost every night and still gave performance even during those times when we didn’t have an official concert. It was a great deal of fun, but I’m glad to be back sleeping in my own bed.
Our tour basically looked like this. Up and down the 25 with a few stops beyond. There were a lot of things to learn and situations to adapt to, and all in all it was a great experience. A few moments on tour that were highlights for me:
- Meeting Tim Tharldson, the composer of the piece, “Rest” that I conducted.
- Visiting the Denver Temple.
- Performing at CSU in the beautiful Griffin Concert Hall
- Hearing the CSU Chamber Singers perform “Mid-Winter Songs” by Morten Lauridsen completely memorized.
- Visiting the Air Force Academy’s Cadet Chapel
- Performing in The Sacred Heart Church in Alamosa
- Performing at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church in Denver.
- Seeing former members of BYU Singers.
I’m glad to have been a part of this wonderful voyage. We had a number of people talk to us about how much our performing changed their lives and how they’ll never be the same. Of course, we’re not the ones to take credit for this effect, we’re just so glad to be able to help people become better.
