There Won't be Bluebirds there -

When I was 17 and getting ready to graduate from high school there was a this lovely woman in my ward in Pasadena who was a lifetime member of the Southern California Mormon Choir. She was a good friend and a musical mentor of mine via ward choir and musical #s etc, and and even though it was unheard of for a kid to be in the Southern California Mormon Choir (the average age is somewhere between 40 and 45 I think), she brought me and I was invited to audition and was admitted. It was a thumb-in-the-suspenders moment for me. We sang Messiah at the Dorthy Chandler Pavilion that year even, which is still on my lifetime highlights reel.
Once school was over and I had this thing called a "normal schedule", and in an effort to not let my talents atrophy, I rejoined the choir about two months ago and its been marvelous. I've done a few concerts already but we have a fabulous one coming up that everyone should know about.

Next week-

Tuesday, March 18th

at 7:30 p.m.

at the Alex Theater in Glendale

We are doing selected Messiah choruses with the Glendale Youth Orchestra (and they are excellent).
There is a bit of a cover so lemme know if you're interested and I'll get you all the details. But the bottom line is you get to her me sing!
Well - sort of.... you get to hear a lot of us sing.

And what is Easter without Messiah? I mean - really.

We're also doing a Sunrise Service on Easter Morning in one of the chapels at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills but thats at 6am. I wouldn't ask anyone but crazy people to come to that (but it is free).

I so so so wish I could be there to hear you sing. I'll have to peek at your performance calendar and see if there's a concert that I can catch on an upcoming trip to LAX.

Sunrise Easter Service at Forest Lawn? I must be crazy, but that sounds fantastic. If I lived closer, I'd be there.
Have fun!
