so so so much to write about. tonight, however, I'm going to focus on the amazing opportunity I have to be a part of the General Relief Society Conference Choir for 2009. Tonight was our 2nd practice. Our direction, Sister Jolly, has the same face and brightness of Julie Andrews, which makes me instantly love and trust her. We ran through 2 songs tonight. When I signed up, they told me they needed Altos, so that's the part I agreed to sing. There are 142 Alto 1. AWESOME! Tonight we rehearsed-
  • As Sisters in 'Zion-at 119 beats per minute. It makes the song incredibly short ;) The harmonies are absolutely incredible.
  • Guide us oh thou great Jehovah--arranged by Mack Walberg. W-O-W! He adds the tiniest touches to make it different that just make you instantly chill. He's so talented.
Sister Jolly has promised that we will have struggles and trials, as we prepare to be this choir, but that we should approach each day that Satan thinks to himself, "Oh no. She's awake again!" She is so fun, light, and instantly makes you comfortable. I have really enjoyed this experience, and am blessed to have this chance. I need to have all the music memorized by our next practice, the 13th. ACK! I can do it! I can do it. I can do it?

Yay for you! If this Sr. Jolley is from the Highland area she was my junior high choir teacher! How fun would that be?!
