Hymns of Thanksgiving

I like singing in choirs. Ever since Concert Choir at MVHS, in the days of Mr. Koliha, I discovered how much I love this sport. At some point it became a little dream of mine to sing with the MoTab.

Well, I don't sing in the MoTab, nor will I ever. BUT I am getting a chance to sing with a 280-voice community choir in our area. Its just for one show called Hymns of Thanksgiving, done around here every Thanksgiving. And guess what? We're singing many of the beautiful arrangements of Mack Wilberg (the MoTab conductor's famous arranger), so my joy is complete.

Here is a pic from last year. Looks like I will even get to wear a top similar to the snazzy ones they wear in the Tabernacle Choir! If you're in town on November 18th, come see the show!

I would really like you to post a picture of yourself in that hideous Koliha dress.

I'm excited to see the concert. I'm especially excited to hear Shenandoah.

I have such great memories of the Koliha choir experience. He really was a great. Janell told me that eariler this year while she was talking to her parents who were somewhere, I don't know, all of a sudden her dad asked her if she wanted to talk to Mr. Koliha -who was there - and before you know it Mr. K was on the phone. Hilarious. He was a great director, but what would you say????

I loved Koliha's directing. I thought he was so on most of the time. Except when he would have his little tantrums every now and then! Those were funny! But I still have a ton of respect for the guy. He knew his stuff, and instilled good choral singing in all of us.

I don't know how I missed this, but I must weigh in. Koliha was good, but the older I get the weirder I think he must have been.

I'm super jealous of your choral opportunities. Now I just wish you would blog more.
