Lamb of God

If you recall, a month or so ago I wrote about the amazing experience I had recording with the London Symphony Orchestra and a redonkulously great choir, this incredible piece of work by Rob Gardner (a friend).

Well tonight is the big first live performance of it, using a 200 voice choir that is local to the valley.

I will be attending tomorrow night, and I'm so excited to see it/hear it performed live. Jere went to a dress rehearsal last night and he is beside himself with how utterly amazing it truly is.

So, IF you live in AZ, then get your buns down to Gammage and see this show. It will not be performed anytime soon again.

If youre NOT in AZ, then by all means, click on this short video and witness for yourself the GORGEOUSNESS of this music. Then buy the CD, cause someone you "know" is "famous" on a CD. hahahahaah PLUS, you get the added bonus of seeing me and Jer, alive and moving.

I am the girl FRONT AND CENTER in the green shirt. Jer is right behind me in the orange shirt. While the frame is frozen here, that's my oldest sister Dana on the top row there, sort of by herselfm to her left is my sister Jenny and to her right, the red head is my sis in law Lana. Also in this video, my brother and my brother in law. And many good friends. Not the least of which are two legit Broadway stars, both were in Les Mis, among other things. Sort of AWESOME!

Enjoy the video and please, leave a comment on what you thought of it.

Then go to my other post of the day and watch the super short video of Max, 'cause dangit, he's CUTE!!!

Peace and love,

Allyson

beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL! i am really pretty jealous right now because i can't sing to save my life. i AM pretty musical though...in the sense that song can pretty much affect me and my emotions really strongly. and that music affected me. hkay and chan came in from the other room and climbed up in my lap to listen with me....they were silent throughout the whole thing...except for when hannah kept saying "wow". fabulous job!

This is AWESOME!! What a chance to get to perform with such a world famous group! I want to hear the rest of it! Very impressive!

Come by when can sing it all....

I just watched it again, and I was able to not be frustrated by not being in something so amazingly, amazing. I just love that all of you got to be in it. I'm ordering the CD tonight, and I'm going to play it till it's worn out! :)

And a question, is that Rob conducting? Is he the same Rob that is our age and went to Mt View? I think he went to school with my sister. If it is, then I remember him and his amazing talent.

Have fun and please tell me how great it was! :)
