US Air Force Academy LDS Cadet Choir to Perform in Salt Lake City

COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO -- The United States Air Force Academy LDS Cadet Choir is continuing its tradition of President's Day Weekend performances with its fourth tour to the Salt Lake City area February 16th, 17th, and 18th.

The Choir will be performing Friday morning, February 16th, at the Joseph Smith Memorial building across from Temple Square at 11 am. At 7:30 pm Friday, the choir will sing in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square. Additional performances will be presented in the Salt Lake City and Provo areas on Saturday and Sunday. The choir's repertoire includes LDS Hymns, patriotic renditions, and spiritual reflections on experiences at the Academy.

The choir is comprised of 110 cadets from all four years of training at the academy. Approximately 50 of the cadets will participate in this year's tour. A number of both the men and women have served missions for the church. All are single, as Academy regulations do not allow married cadets.

The choir is an officially sponsored club of the Academy and sings once every month in the Air Force Academy Chapel. The choir is given one hour each week to practice.

Major Mark Patterson is the officer in charge of the choir. The choir is directed by Dr. Chris Brady, a dentist; and Norm Black, a former Air Force officer who is now in private business.
