"If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things ... " 13th Article of Faith
For those of us who believe that our vote counts, "seeking after these things" becomes more than a mere statement, it is is reality, a chance to VOTE! President Hinckley, in referring to entertainment, once reminded us that to a very large degree, we get what we pay for. When the only movies that are successful in the theatres are the awesome and impressive, though somewhat perverted, versions of the world we live in (as Hollywood sees it) - then we can assume that enough of us are 'voting' with our tickets for them. Enough said for now - you don't want to get me started on that.....
Once in a while though, something really "virtuous, lovely, and praiseworthy" comes to town. And BYU Idaho Symphony has received plenty of "good report" from those lucky enough to have seen them in concert. Saturday, April 16 2011 - the Robert Tegler Theatre, at the Concordia University Campus in Edmonton, will be the place to be to drink in teh beautiful sounds of hte Greatest Master Composers of the last two centuries. Suitable for all those who love beautiful music, and recommended for ages 12 and up, this concert promises to be a fun and enriching evening for all.
Sunday dress please, this is a classy affair. Originally recommended for 18 and over, the sponsors have deferred to popular request and reduced the age suggestion. I'm glad they did. If youth have an interest in the beautiful music of the Great Masters, they definitely should be encouraged in that direction ....
Tickets are available at Generations LDS Bookstore and are only $10.00 EACH.
