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
