Choir Hits a Grand Slam
The Choir took its final bow of the Atlantic Coast tour in Boston’s Wang Theater Tuesday night. The enthusiastic standing ovations in the program were well deserved. Said one Bostonian, “I bought tickets at Christmas for my family. I’ve waited years to see this Choir live.”
The evening—and the tour—was a resounding success from the Choir’s magnificent Alleluias to “Give my Regards to Broadway” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic” to Alex Boye’s splits on stage at the end of “I’m Runnin’ On.” Then it was back to the busses and a quick trip to the hotel for the last night on the road. Elder Ronald Rasband, senior president of the Quorum of the Seventy who with his wife Melanie accompanied the Choir for a portion of the 13-day tour called the last performance “a grand slam.” Fitting, given that the Choir sang “The Star Spangled Banner” at the opening of a Yankee’s Game as well as performing at 7 concerts in acclaimed outdoor and concert hall venues from Washington to New York to Boston.
