Ricks College Groups Perform in Tabernacle

As part of a seven-concert tour through Idaho and Utah, a choir of 250 Ricks College students performed pieces by a Latter-day Saint composer in the Tabernacle on Temple Square.

The program, which features a musical rendition of 2 Nephi 4 by Robert Cundick, is part of an ongoing effort by the Church-sponsored junior college to perform sacred works by Latter-day Saint composers.

The March 17 concert was attended by President Gordon B. Hinckley and other General Authorities. Brother Cundick, a former Tabernacle organist, called the performance remarkable. “The scores that I write are difficult. I could not have hoped for a better performance from these wonderful young people.”

The program included “The Song of Nephi” and other works written by Brother Cundick, including a cantata.
