Issue 139


Monday was a holiday, so we took the kids to see the Carl Bloch exhibit at the BYU Museum of art. They had many of his alter pieces from Europe and many of his etchings as well as some non-religious pieces. It was wonderful to see such masterful, original pieces, up close and in person. A trip to the creamery for ice cream after the museum topped it off just right!

Take 6 by Whitney

This last week we got to go see "Take 6" perform at the University of Utah. It was amazing! I wasn't sure what to expect because my dad had just told me about them earlier that day when he dropped me off for school. Turns out that they are and African American singing group that specializes in accapella. I had never heard of them before but they were excellent singers. They had a base a tenor, two high tenors, a beat box type and an alto. They sang about a dozen different songs ranging from pop to gospel. It was an excellent experience to be able to hear that type of southern culture that I'm rarely exposed to here in the west. I personally can't wait to hear them again via itunes!
