(Spring 2009) Our best friends in the whole wide world are TJ and Kari, fellow music lovers and proud parents of almost as many kids as us! :) We've been best friends for almost forever, dating back to before TJ and my missions. TJ earned his degree from BYU in music education and was a popular choir teacher in Wyoming for a time. In other words, a REAL musician! :) One of our favorite things to do is get our families together for a two-hour dinner/visit...which always ends up being about six hours because Teej and I can't stop talking about music stuff and Amber and Kari are having too much girly fun too. It was on one such visit that TJ asked me for some help with a piano accompaniment for his stake choir. The stake president requested "Jesus Savior Pilot Me" for stake conference, and he had a nice counterpoint line for the men to sing along with the melody. Voila! I am SO pleased to FINALLY start working with my talented best friend, and hope this is the beginning of many more choral collaborations.
