Robert Cundick Concert in New York City
The eleven Manhattan congregations of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) include a disproportionally large number of serious student and professional musicians. When a group of these musicians, looking for a signal concert for their "LDS Artists in Concert" series, discovered that Robert Cundick turned 75 years old this year, it seemed a perfect occasion to honor the prolific Utah composer with a concert of his works.

Guess Who Near Wrapping Up American Tour
If there is ever a rock anthem titled "reconciliation," it would have to be by The Guess Who. While most baby-boomers will, if they remember the band, know that the group died long ago, and maybe even remember that the Mormon beliefs of its leader, Randy Bachman, played a factor in the group's demise. But Bachman has now reunited with his former band members, and they are now nearing the end of an American tour, finishing the "American Woman" tour they never completed when Bachman left.

New Civil War Epic Sells 15,000 Copies in Two Weeks
The turmoil and triumph of the Civil War are powerfully brought to life in the new epic historical fiction series, Faith of Our Fathers, by N.C. Allen. "The first printing of 15,000 copies sold out in two weeks," said Robby Nichols, Vice President of Marketing for Covenant Communications. "It's already one of the best-selling LDS books of the season."

New artist Jared Johnson will open for award-winning pop songstress Julie de Azevedo at BYU's de Jong Concert Hall on October 26 in a fundraising concert for the Y Cycling Club. The concert will feature new tunes from de Azevedo's latest pop album HELLO SKY, as well as Johnson's own unique brand of piano music.
