Holiday Organ Concert and Sing-along

I had originally planned to go to the Trail of Lights with my ward tonight, but Michael Perrone called and offered me a ticket to John Longhurst╩╝s holiday organ concert. I decided that if I had seen the Trail of Lights once I had seen it a million times, and I could very well get some friends together and walk around in the cold and the dark for forty-five minutes any other day this month. So I went to the concert, with Michael and Theresa Jordan and Mariah Campbell.

John Longhurst is a cool guy. He basically owns the organ in the Tabernacle at Temple Square, Salt Lake City, Utah. Yeah, he╩╝s really good. My favorite part was when he played Angels We Have Heard on High and everyone in the hall (except the people sitting next to us) sang along. We also sang Silent Night with a harp and some percussion later in the concert.
