Glory to the Newborn King
Tonight I had the pleasure to attend a performance at the Covey Arts Center called Utah Valley Symphony: A Family Christmas Concert. The music of Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations combined with story telling by Kevin Kling was delightful, and it was a great way to kick off the Christmas season. The conductor even involved the audience in singing some Christmas carols, of which one of my favorites was Hark The Herald Angels Sing:
Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
The storyteller stated emphatically that every great story is a love story, and every great story includes other stories. He then evoked the classic story of The Little Engine That Could in reference to dating. Well done, and thanks to all involved. There is another show tomorrow night. I couldn't recommend this event more highly.
