I know I am terrible at blogging because I am pretty sure most people just don't care that much about the goings on of our life. Also, the thought of trying to recap everything I haven't written about is too daunting so if you are really that interested you probably already know or you can ask.
I am writing to announce that one week from Sunday on April 25th at 4pm there will be a choral performance like none other in the history of Pocatello. The ISU Women's Choir will be performing Stabat Mater by Giovani Pergolesi in its entirety. Unless you are a voice major you probably have no clue what I am talking about (I had never heard of it until last fall) so I will give you a brief introduction.
Stabat Mater is translated from Latin as "Sorrowful Mother" the entire work is based on the feelings, sorrows and love of Mary as she watched her Son be hung on the cross for the sins of his people. Although each of the 13 movements are in Latin (a poetic translation will be provided) the story is passionate and beautiful and expresses the sorrows only a mother could know while grieving over her first born.

Along with my choir I have been working on this piece since September and have truly come to love it and appreciate the message it conveys. So here I am inviting everyone who is in the Pocatello (Idaho Falls, Salt Lake, etc) area to come to this wonderful (FREE!!!!) concert at 4pm Sunday April 25th at the Congregational Church. We have worked really hard (and are REALLY good).
If you aren't there you will truly be missing out.
P.S. I am one of the 5 soloists! It will be awesome! And it is only about 45 minutes long so well worth your time.
P.P.S. if you want to come and would like to spend the weekend in glorious (cough* cough*) Pocatello, we will be in our new 4 bedroom house by then so you could stay with us! More on the house at a later date!
