Recently, BYU Singers had the opportunity to perform in the Area Committee meeting. “I had a meeting with Elder Christofferson, Elder Rasband, and Elder Gilbert later that day,” says Shane Wright, director of Performing Arts Management. They were each effusive in their praise for the powerful singing and inspiring feelings that resulted from the performance.”
Commissioner of the Church Educational System Elder Clark G. Gilbert was also deeply impressed by the Singers’ work. The following are his comments regarding the experience.
“The technical performance was remarkable, they brought spiritual hymns in as the backbone of the program, and they sang with the Spirit. They also had selected students share their backgrounds and why they love BYU. Without exception, these were powerful and inspiring comments. At the end of the program, Elder Holland had them shake the hands of each of the Twelve, which I’m sure will be memorable for the whole group. Please tell Andrew Crane and the performing students what a remarkable job they did representing the university and the Church.”
