Tabernacle Choir ~ 2019 in Review

It's been another intense, busy year for the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square, celebrating 90 years of continuous broadcasts!

Here's a pretty detailed list of all of our events for 2019:  "This Train Never Stops" ~Mack Wilburg.

Here are a few "Train" songs! 
Here are some highlights of the 2018 Christmas Concert with itty bitty Kristin Chenoweth, which played during the Christmas season of 2019.  What a delight to be able to sing backups for these amazing guest artists!

And finally, this broadcast of Music & the Spoken Word, the last of 2019, was a beautiful way to round out the old year and welcome the new one.  I was especially touched by "I'll Begin Again".

Now as I head into my last four months of singing with The Choir, I feel so grateful and blessed to be a part of this amazing organization - to lift up my voice and sing praises to the Lord.  I know I'll miss it when I retire in April, but for now, I'll be savoring every moment.

Music & the Spoken Word Christmas Special 2019

I so enjoyed our guest artists Kelli O'Hara and Richard Thomas (John-Boy from "The Waltons") for this year's Christmas Concert.  The full show will be broadcast on PBS stations during the Christmas season of 2020.  I thought it was amazing in every way: our guests, the dancing, the Herald Trumpets, the processional, the music.  Until then, I'll enjoy watching this episode of The Spoken Word.

In Dulce Jubilo
O Come Let Us Adore Him
Birthday of a King
We Wish You a Merry Christmas - organ
Hallelujah! ~ Bach
Baby of Bethlehem
Luke 2 Reading
Angels From the Realms of Glory

Here are some highlights of the Christmas Concert. ♥♥♥

Merry Christmas!

Thanksgiving day came and our assignment was rolls, but dinner was not until 3:00 pm.  Plenty of time to go to the Momma's friend Debbie's house to make rolls together!  Four batches ought to do it!

The rolls were great!  So was the rest of the feast!

Meanwhile, at a buffet in Reno, Nevada on their way to Lake Tahoe....

Howdy, Jojo & Kari!

And a few thousand miles away on an island in the middle of the ocean, gathering with friends...

Aloha, Lali & Ry!

Food, Family, Friends and Feasting!  We may not be together, but we are together in our Thanks-giving!

New Apron

It was a "Meat Night" get-together. 
No frills.
No "sides".
No ladies.
Just the guys.  And meat. And prizes.

The Dad had been experimenting...

7-Up/Soy/Horseradish marinade.  Not as good as he remembered.
Barbecue.  Nope, nothing unusual there.
Back to the old standard:  Bernstein's Cheese & Garlic Italian Dressing.
Marinate the chicken breasts for a few hours, then throw it on the grill.  That's it.
Well, add a new apron made by the Momma a few minutes beforehand. 

The result?  2nd Prize Winner!!  Must have been the apron!

Look at that smile.  Now, what's for dinner?  Maybe some grilled corn on the cob?
I know a guy.

I love MSW at Conference time!  

Praise to the Lord - arr. Mack Wilburg
"Now as we worship before thee"

If the Savior Stood Beside Me
Truth Eternal, Truth Divine
O, Jesus My Savior, My Song in the Night
Love Divine, All Love Excelling

Makers Gotta Make....

After a couple of sewing/quilting sessions with La-li, here is what her little pile of creations looked like. 

Clockwise from left to right:  Naugahyde tulip bag, Sleeve bag, Embroidery, pencil bag, OMQG nametag,
 customized notebook, hand stitched coin purse, fabric billfold purse.
Sunset was coming on, but she was Über excited to "Sew-n-Tell"!
A big, yellow Tulip Bag for Cissy!

Complete with grommets and hardware!

Assorted baggage & ebroidery:

The green zipper bag is made from the sleeves of a cute old shirt
she wore in High School; found at the Thrift store, likely from the 70s.
The second is a quilted pencil bag from cute scraps lying around the sewing room,
and the embroidery is her own needlework.

Re-do of a quilted nametag for the Oahu Modern Quilt Guild:

Lali removed elements from a nametag she didn't like and repositioned in a new setting.
Momma quilted and bound it with crochet-edged bias trim, then added a ribbon lanyard.  The little sewing machine is based on a pattern HERE. <<

 New wallet!!

Perfect fabrics for a summer purse in Japan!

Ohmigosh, so cute - both the girl and her collection!

Come back for another sewing day, soon!
