Tooele and Jackson!

Flexible!
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Another weekend, another show! Well technically two. Our first trip on Friday night took us to the Syracuse Stallions in Tooele, Utah where we had the privilege of doing workshop for the students there. There Randy taught about the different placements our voices have and how as performers we need to be exploring those and perfecting our craft. Our YA band, affectionately termed 'Bandits', also had the rare opportunity to give a band workshop to the jazz band at the high school.

We got home around midnight just to turn around the next day and head to Jackson Hole, Wyoming the next morning at 8! After the arduous yet stunning drive, we arrived in snow filled Jackson to enjoy a delicious meal at the Jackson Hole Playhouse. Then we headed over to the Off Square Theater to perform 'Harmony' for the residents of this beautiful little city.

The highlight once again was found though the next morning when we had the opportunity to sing a morning side for the Latter-Day Saints in the community. The Spirit was strong and we were all filled. We left that Chapel better people. The music was followed by a sunday school lesson, then Sacrament meeting that also happened to be a fast and testimony meeting. These meetings happen once a month and give anyone in the congregation the opportunity to stand and share their testimony and faith. We were all reminded that God loves each of us individually and knows our needs.

With that being over we boarded the buses and headed for Provo! Our bus driver Stan got us home safe and sound. :)

...and that's our last show until we head to South Africa late in April! The next big adventure we have before that will be Young Ambassador auditions for the 2012-2013 season where we will be going to China!

More info to come!
