    some of you already know i attended the national railroad historical society convention, held last week wed-saturday, in salt lake city utah, well there will be photos coming , including one of the up big boy, but first, here is a way cool thing i got to do while there. i attended an open rehearsal of the tabernachal choir, in the tabernachal, something they usually do weekly on thursday nights. the first half hour was with the utah symphony orchestra, then half hour without, while they smoothed out some pieces of railroad songs, then they closed the rehearsal, because the next night they were doing a free 90 minute full concert, with the orchestra and 2 special guest stars, brian stokes mitchell, who i saw on broadway, when he won a tony award for his lead in kiss me kate, and broadway and tv star megan hilty. i also was able to attend that full show via getting a last minute standby ticket, that show was in the convention center, which also has great acoustics in a full hall setting. i did not bring my phone to that performance so unfortunately i do not have photos of this magnificent choir in full voice

    aside view of the choir and orchestra, this actually was the first photo i took, and then one of the church elders came over and suggested i move dead center into the first row so i could get unobstructed shots, so i did

    the sally bytheway chorale group rehearsing, a smaller chorale group made up of retired choir members and others who may not be able to make the rigorous choir performance schedule, they do quite a variety of jazz,gospel,blues and other genre music, and they were also very good, they were rehearsing in a smaller side church on the grounds, temple square behind the 10 foot cement wall, is 32 acres enclosed
