Ellen Eccles Theatre in Logan UT has been payed off!


The Ellen Eccles Theatre in Logan, UT has been under a bond for over 20 years. There have been various parties, including Cache County, who have worked to pay off this bond. These parties saw the value of the theater and the potential it had for bringing in artistic groups to enrich our community.

The Herald Journal has published a story relating this news here: http://bit.ly/XljX4b

The theater has faced various issues and successes repaying this bond throughout these 20 years, such as this: http://bit.ly/Yo4yPm and this: http://bit.ly/XRPg3c. For more past news on the theater, please visit http://www.centerforthearts.us/news.html.

I began performing in the theater during my years at Utah State University as a member of the USU Chamber Singers and the USU University Chorale. I have had even further opportunities to perform there with the American Festival Chorus and the American Festival Singers. I cannot remember, but I would not be surprised if I attended various events at this theater while growing up in Northern Utah. I would imagine that I attended at least one musical. Since moving to Cache Valley in 2004, I have attended plenty of events at this theater ranging from stand up comedy by Brian Regan to operas and musicals. While my budget does not always allow me to attend everything I wish I could at the theater, I am very appreciative that we have this icon in our community. I can only hope that I progress enough in my profession to garner a large enough salary to allow for more of these entertainment opportunities. This news of the theater being paid off is great for Logan City funding and for all Cache Valley residents. I, personally, am very appreciate as well for the RAPZ tax that has helped to pay off this theater. Yes, it is a tax, but I feel it has helped preserve the uniqueness of this community.

I am eager to perform with the American Festival Chorus and American Festival Singers in future appearances at the theater. And I can only hope that the Men’s Acappella Chorus of Cache Valley progresses throughout the years to be able to warrant a performance in this theater as well.

Debut performance of Men’s Acappella Chorus of Cache Valley a success!!!


Please click on the link to read the review above.

I am so impressed by my fellow singers in the Men’s Acappella Chorus of Cache Valley. Our debut performance was a great hurdle to get over. It helps us keep something driving us in our rehearsals. It is a milestone that needed to be reached.

Our acappella group has been so much fun for me. And other chorus members have expressed similar sentiments. They say how even if we don’t have many people asking us to perform that they have plenty of fun just in rehearsals. And I agree, it is a LOT of fun to get a group of men together and sing without any instrument accompaniment. When those chords lock in, it brings a tingle to your whole body. I’ve literally had goosebumps during some rehearsals. I hope the other chorus members know how appreciative I am of their dedication and their support.

I love hearing comments from audience members after a performance. I love seeing their faces as they say how much they enjoyed the performance. Their smiles when they describe how glad they are that we performed a specific song. Singing music is a service. While we do sing for the sheer enjoyment of singing ourselves. We also sing to share music with others. Music can change the outcome of a day. It can brighten attitudes. It can leave lasting impressions. It can motivate. And we love it when our music has touched those we share it with.

I am excited to start working on new material with the Men’s Acappella Chorus of Cache Valley (MACCV). We will begin preparing for Christmas concerts in December and we will also work a few new pieces to add to our repertoire.

Thanks again to those who attended our debut performance!

 

The Men’s Acappella Chorus of Cache Valley had their debut performance Sunday night, July 22 in the Kent Concert at USU.

Here is a link to the announcement we posted for this concert: http://bit.ly/KDUj5s

The performance went extremely well! From estimates given by USU Alumni Band members based on performances that last few weeks, we only expected around 30 people to show up. Add on the fact that the concert was moved from the lawn of the Quad on the east side of Old Main building to instead be held in the Kent Concert Hall, and it was actually surprising to see such a huge turn out. The Kent Concert Hall holds 2168 people, and we believe the venue was over half full if not 2/3 full. We were definitely very enthused to have such a large audience for our debut performance. And we are very appreciative to the…

Men’s Acappella Group of Cache Valley needs an official name


Click HERE to fill out our survey on

which group names you prefer.

A new men’s acappella group has been created in Cache Valley, Utah and is in need of help from fans to come up with a name for the group. I wrote a blog back at the end of April, 2012 describing the intent of organizing this men’s acappella group. Here is a link to that blog: http://bit.ly/Ix0QfP

Local men quickly showed their interest and we had our first rehearsal at the beginning of May. We have now been rehearsing for almost two months.

Before we schedule performances, we would like to settle on a group name. Now, we are planning on organizing a smaller sub-group of this larger acappella group hopefully in the near future. So we potentially need two group names. It has been proposed that the name for the larger group be a generic name such as “Men’s Acappella Chorus of Cache Valley” – meanwhile reserving the more specific name for the small group. Let us know what your thoughts are on this.

A survey has been created to gather votes from our fans on which group names they prefer. Please visit this survey and give us your preferences: http://bit.ly/LuZ0h4.
