Choir and Orchestra Participate in BYUtv’s Random Acts

As children we learn we must be kind to others, but as we grow into adults do we remember to continue that pattern of behavior toward others?  Do we look for ways to reach out to others who might need our help? A well-known youth leader has said recently, “It is the love of God and neighbor that gives meaning to life.”

Random Acts, a new original television hidden-camera series which premiered earlier this month, recently filmed one of its upcoming episodes in the Salt Lake Tabernacle with the help of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square.  Watch what happens as the guest is surprised with an opportunity that fulfilled a long-held dream. Episode 4 is scheduled to be aired on April 25, 2016 on BYUtv or you can watch it online among Random Acts episodes after it has aired.

Random Acts is a television program designed to show “the good in the world” and about doing good to others in unexpected ways. “We are constantly bombarded with tragedies, violent crimes, and catastrophes that most often show human-kind at its worst,” said Derek Marquis, executive producer of Random Acts. Through Random Acts, BYUtv hopes to highlight encounters that focus on the kindness and positive experiences that service for others can bring.  The show hopes to encourage viewers to step outside their comfort zones to look for ways to help others.
