On Sunday, I was privileged enough to attend a fireside held at the Conference Center Theatre. This was a hush, hush concert. (Held for those who were attending a work conference in SLC last week) There were many different musicians there to perform their favorite hymns and church songs. (at this moment I can't find the program, so I will just tell you the names I remember)
There was a girl from Finland (I think) that played the violin. She was amazing! There was a couple that were both opera singers who were dazzling. I really liked the little birdie song they sang. A local youth choir was there. (my brothers were in it. why I was invited) They sang the medley of As Sisters In Zion and Army of Helaman. I know that song is ridiculously over sung especially in this area; however, this was the best performance of it I have heard in a LONG time.
Also there was Sam Cardon who accompanied a young couple. Kalai was there. He sang Be Still My Soul, Kalai style. Interesting version. I liked it. He sang a couple of other songs, but I don't remember at the moment. There was a 12 year old girl there who rocked the house. She was great. She flew out from New Jersey to participate.
And, of course, the reason for the hush, hush. . . . . .
David Archuleta was there to finish off the night. Now, I'm not really an American Idol fan, but he really is good. Really shy, but boy does he have a set of pipes on his body. It was beautiful.
The night was wonderful. I got to listen to some amazing people sing/play some amazing songs. It was a good night.
