My brother Stewart called about a month ago and told us about this concert at Temple Square. We all got tickets and we took Brendan and Jordan on Saturday Night. Wow, it was beautiful. The name of it is Joseph Smith the Prophet and it was composed and conducted by a very talented young graduate of BYU, Rob Gardner. It was beautiful, a few vocal perfomances with a full orchestra. If any one ever has another opportunity to see it, go you will not regret it. My brother traveled down from Boise just to see it. It was the Highlight of my day. There was one song in paticular that really touched me, it was called Irene (Your Baby Was Here). Emma sang this one and it was all about her still born baby and how she was too perfect to live on this earth. It was very touching to think what Emma went through. I am fortunate that I have never had to suffer this kind of loss. I hope I never do. My children are so precious to me. I couldn't help, but look over at the boys throughout the concert. They were so good and listening so intently as they admired all the musical talent as did I. I asked them what they thought after it was over and they both just said how much they liked it. Thanks Stewart and Julie for letting know about this. It makes me realize how fortunate we are to live so close and have the experiences to allow all of us to strengthen our testimonies.
