Easter Oratorio

From January to Easter, our stake choir was busy preparing for the world premiere of the Easter Oratorio, “Jesus, the Christ”, composed by our Stroud Ward’s talented David Markham. What a great opportunity to think more about the Savior’s last days, and especially about His atonement, sacrifice and resurrection.


The rehearsal we sat back and away, so we wouldn’t give everyone our colds.


There was alot of opposition leading up to the performance, mostly sickness including one that really hit the voice box. Two days before, I woke up and had no voice–the first time in my life–which I’m sure was a trial to Gene. 🙂


Here is Joe P. warming us up for the performance that night.






Then the next week, we had a recording session, a fun opportunity to sing with our stake and ward friends, without our colds. 🙂


Awesome experience! Cheerio!
