Mormon Tabernacle Choir Makes a Joyful Noise

We went to see Mo-Tab last night and it was incredible! No one in our family had seen the choir in person, except John (and that was when he was a small child). We were so excited. My friend Mari watched Sam, since they didn't want kids under 8 going...I was a bit miffed by that, but he probably had more fun playing with Spencer and Lauren than he would have listening to the choir. Thank you Mari!

The other good thing thing about my friend Mari watching Sam is that she took this picture of us before we left:

Our seats weren't great...We didn't think it would matter except we forgot about the little acoustical director thing at the top of the risers, which directed all the sound towards the front, and so it was actually really hard to hear them even though they were loud.

We we didn't care for a little while we listened in our places until the intermission...

...when we spotted many empty seats on the lower level and went to get one This was our view from our "new" seats. The sound was so much better and the Spirit so much stronger.

The choir sang many songs, but the family favorites were, "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," and "God Be With You 'Til We Meet Again." This picture is an indication of how strong the spirit was during their signature piece "God Be With You 'Til We Meet Again." See the tears streaming down John's cheeks?

We had such a great time. I am glad we had the experience...too bad it took us this long to be able to see and hear them!
