Granite Youth Symphony Summer Tour

Shellise left yesterday on her week long trip with the Granite Youth Symphony to California. They held a farewell concert for the parents at Taylorsville High School on Thursday night. I have to tell you, it was awesome! It lasted over 2 hours. Those kids are amazingly talented. Here is their Concert Tour Brochure. Look at all the songs they play and that they learned in only 3 weeks time. I was very impressed and very pround that Shellis has had the opportunity to participate.

Their tour is going to be a wonderful experience for Shellise. Just look at the schedule!

Their tour schedule is as follows:

Monday, June 29th - Stopping in St. George. They performed at the Tuacahn Theater for the opening of Annie and also got to stay and watch the play.

Tuesday, June 30th - Arrive in Los Angeles. Attend Medieval Times Dinner Show.

Wednesday, July 1st - Disneyland. Recording Workshop Day. Besides being able to have fun at Disneyland they will be recording their concert. The workshop is with Bob Feller but I am not sure who that is unless it's one of The Greatest Baseball Pitcher's of all time.

Thursday, July 2nd - Disneyland. Another Day of Fun and a performance in the park at 10:30 in the Carnation Plaza Gardens Stage.

That night they will be attending the LA Philharmonic Concert with John Fogerty. I thought that would be pretty cool because I loved John Fogerty growing up. But these kids have no idea who he is which makes me feel pretty darn old!

Friday, July 3rd - Six Flags. They have a performance here and afterwards they get to spend the rest of the day at the park having fun. That night they have a banquet dinner at the hotel.

Saturday, July 4th - Beach day until 3:00. Then they get to go to the Angel's Stadium to watch a baseball game between the Angel's and Orioles, and watch fireworks afterwards.

Following the fireworks, they load the bus to go home.

Sunday, July 5th - Arrive in Salt Lake City at Noon.

I am so excited that Shellise was able to go on this tour. She will have a marvelous time and have some wonderful experiences. I can't wait to hear all about it!
