April Brings Showers and 3 Vocal Events to the Logan Tabernacle

Well, I am not sure about the showers.  There might even be snow showers since we haven't really had our full share of snow yet in Cache Valley.  Or you may think we have had enough already.  Here are following events at the Tabernacle during the month of April so you might calendar those of interest to you.  Remember, all of the Concert and Lecture Series events are FREE to the public. 

April 7-8, 2012 Saturday and Sunday 7pm  

Easter Cantata -"Love's Greatest Gift"

"Love's Greatest Gift," a cantata for choir and orchestra, was cowritten by Cecelia Benson, Karen Carter, and John Carter of Logan, Utah and based on a text by the late Hortense Richardson of Salt Lake City.  Performed yearly during the Easter weekend at the Logan Tabernacle in downtown Logan, Utah, Love's Greatest Gift has touched the lives of countless individuals who have participated in its performance and listened to its message. This Cantata is returning to the tabernacle in Logan, after a year absense.  It has become an Easter tradition in Logan.  The performances on Saturday and Sunday will be at 7:00 pm and there is no charge for admission.
The text of this cantata begins where most leave off, at the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and follows through to His ascension into Heaven.  The role of Mary will be sung by Heather Shepherd, a soprano residing in Atlanta Georgia, and the role of Christ will be sung by Jonathon Weiss, from Logan, Utah.   Many other local soloists will be featured in this year's performance.
This year's performance will mark the 14th year that the work has been performed.  It's original performances in 1996 and 1997 were on a smaller scale, but when the invitation to present it in the tabernacle was extended in 2000, the piece was expanded to include full orchestra and will be narrated by Bruce Newbold, who has appeared in television and motion pictures including 17 Miracles, Everwood, Touched by an Angel and many more. He also recently released a Novel, "Baseball Box Prophecy"
We invite all to come and share in this Easter Celebration on April 7th & 8th, in the Logan Tabenracle.

Do You Like Looking Up at the Night Sky

Then join us on March 9, 2012 at 7:00pm at the Logan Tabernacle.
An Evening with the Stars: 
Cache Valley’s Role in Space.
This presentation tells the history of the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission, USU’s involvement, and will show on the Tabernacle’s large screen many of the stunning images captured by the WISE instrument. It will be Friday, March 9, at 7:00 p.m. in the Logan Tabernacle and it is free of charge.
The presenter is John Elwell, the program manager for the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, built by USU’s Space Dynamics Laboratory (SDL). The WISE telescope was created by SDL for NASA to survey the whole sky. Launched into orbit in December 2009, WISE scanned the entire sky in infrared wavelengths, taking millions of spectacular images, and discovered distant galaxies, comets and brown dwarf stars, and thousands of previously unknown asteroids.

Starting a Facebook Page

Hi Everyone,
John Carter and I are part of a committee for the Logan Tabernacle Concert and Lecture Series. We are sponsored by the Cache Community Connections and all events are FREE. Lucille Hansen of Logan was first developer of the Christmas and Noon Music programs 10 years ago. When she retired from its management, and the program expanded to include other monthly concert and lecture events, it took 10 volunteers to continue her great community work. Thank you Lucille!!

We set up a Facebook Page for those interested in the events coming to the LDS Tabernacle in Logan. We will also be writing a blog which you are currently reading.  If you want to receive blog updates when we write a new post, just click on FOLLOW in the upper left-hand corner and write you email and you will receive notice. We will have performance schedules and other pertinent information about the events.

There will be a lecture on Outer Space by the Space Dynamic Lab in Logan Utah on March 9, 2012. On April 7-8, 2012, an Easter Cantata by a community chorus will be presented. We are also currently preparing the schedule for a 10-week period of daily (M-F) Noon Music performances from June 4-August 10, 2012. More specific information will come very soon.
