Last Friday, our Sorelle Voce performed at the BYU Women's Chorus Festival at BYU (Sorelle Voce is our auditioned, select women's ensemble.). There were 8 choirs involved in the festival. Our ladies were honored by the choral faculty of BYU and by the festival adjudicators as winners of the "Command Performance Award." Our ladies performed Schubert's "Psalm 23," a wordless, nonsense-syllable, Acappella piece entitled, "Voice Dance" and closed their set with a lush setting of the text from the Song of Solomon, "Set Me As A Seal Upon Your Heart."

Maple Mountain High announces the February students of the month.

In five years, sophomore Yalaina Linford sees herself attending BYU and working towards becoming an elementary school teacher, as well as a seminary teacher. Yalaina’s doesn’t have a favorite subject because she loves learning.

Her favorite quote is, "All that we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us." – Gandalf. She likes that quote because it brings out the fact that we can’t always choose our circumstances, but we can choose our attitudes and actions.
