Honors Choir Concert
Summer tried out for the State Junior High Honors Choir last fall.
The concert was last Saturday at Mountain View High School.
They spent the entire day on Friday as well as Saturday morning rehearsing.
The exciting thing was that the director was Ryan T. Murphy (appointed the associate music director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in 2009).
He was very strict and very professional and the kids loved him.
He directed them in the same way that they do the MoTab.
He would stop after Every. Single. Word. Until they could sing it correctly.
Summer texted us about 2 hours before it started and told us to come early because the seats were filling up quickly. I hadn't even showered yet, so we hurried to get ready. We got there 45 minutes early. Good thing. We almost didn't get a seat. Cole and Rick were enjoying the early arrival.
There were about 5 students from Mapleton Junior High.
Summer is wearing a pinkish-purple cardigan.
There were over 350 students that performed.
It was pretty impressive.
You might find Summer more easily in this shot.
