My Dear Brothers and Sisters of Affirmation,

Two years ago at our Annual Conference, we had a rare opportunity to hold our devotional in the Kirtland Temple, and to assemble a choir to sing there. It was a wonderful experience for all who participated in the choir and for those who attended!

The people in Kirtland who work at the Temple said that our choir was the best music they had had there all year, and that we sounded like a mini Mormon Tabernacle Choir! One gentleman said he liked us better than the MoTab! Pretty great reviews!

Last year, we had another opportunity to assemble a choir and sing together at the devotional for our Annual Conference in Seattle. The Spirit was so strong during our practices and our performances, and we had a great time!

For me, being your choir director and creating that music with you is the highlight of my year! You guys and girls are amazing! I feel so blessed by your beautiful spirits and your wonderful music!

This year, we have a chance to sing together again in Salt Lake City! So, if you like to sing or play an instrument, please contact me, and if you know which part you sing (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass), let me know. If you play an instrument, let me know what that is, and I'll see if we can use it in the choir arrangements or for a special musical number.

This year we will be singing "Consider the Lilies". It's gorgeous! Our rehearsal schedule is very short this year, so I am posting MP3 files of your parts as well as sheet music. Please listen ahead of time and come as prepared as possible!

Also, please let me know that you are singing (if you know ahead of time) and what your part is (i.e. SATB) so we can start well-organized!

I did MP3s of each part separately, then soprano/alto parts together, the tenor/bass parts together, and all parts together to help you be as ready as you can! And how cool will you look driving down the road blasting THAT on your stereo!!! :)

Also, if you have friends or family members who would like to sing/play in the choir, please feel free to invite them to participate and to contact me as well. The more the merrier!!!

See you all in Salt Lake City for the 2013 Affirmation Conference “New Frontiers”!

Love and blessings to you all,

— Judy, Choir Director

P.S. If you are planning to participate in the choir and know so in advance, please let me know so I have some idea of our numbers! Thanks! :-)
