Portland Mormon Choir

Those who know me best know that the dream choir I would love to be a member of is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

My whole lfe I have wanted SO bad to be a member.

My desire became even greater when they added the Orchestra at Temple Square.

(Which my Aunt, cousin, and high school friend are all a part of)

Maybe that's the violinist in me.

Every time I listen to their music, I cry.

Not only because of the Spirit I feel in their inspired hymn arrangements, but because of my overwhelming desire to sing with them.

Being that Seth and I will be residents in Wyoming when all of this schooling is over, that dream has been put on hold.

Who knows if it will ever happen.

At BYU-Idaho, I was a member of Collegiate Singers.

We sang with the BYU-I Symphony Orchestra for an oratorio.

And, I would have to say that is my favorite memory of that choir.

(My sister was in the orchestra...made it better.)

Now that I've grown past that part of my life, I believe the closest I will get to grabbing hold of my dream is being a member of the Portland Mormon Choir and Orchestra.

I tried out for it this week.

And, I found out this morning that I made it!

I can't tell you how grateful and excited I am to be a member.

Now, I just need to convince Seth that Utah is a nice place to have a practice. *wink

Oh, and who's the TFHS friend in the SLC orchestra?

That is awesome! Sierra, I admire so much your putting-dreams-to-action type of personality. I would never dare try out for anything! And I think Utah is a fantastic place to have a practice. I need to convince devin of that too...
