Mormon Tab Tickets, Anyone?


In an earlier post, I told y'all how excited I was that the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is coming to Kansas City on their next tour.

So, a funny thing happened to me last Sunday (and yes, this is all related . . . )

Our family has this terrible habit of arriving at church early. :) This last Sunday, we ended up coming in two cars. I arrived at church first and had three of my kids settled into a pew when up walks . . . Brother Michie!

Now, Brother Michie is an awesome guy. He's really funny and has an incredible singing voice. He's also on our stake high council over stake activities. For those of you who aren't LDS, a stake is geographic unit that over-sees and leads about six Church congregations. The high council is a group of priesthood leaders who help with leadership and activities for the stake.

So, Brother Michie comes up and asks if I have a few minutes to talk. Of course, I say yes. I mean hey, he's over activities, right? So it must involve something fun!

And I wasn't disappointed.

He asked me if I'd be willing to be the Mormon Tabernacle Choir concert ticket contact person for our congregation.

Score! How fun! Two of my favorite things - organizing a project & music - all in one fun activity. I can totally handle that. I'm very excited to help!

So, here's the really funny part. My hubby showed up just as church was starting. He and our son got settled onto the bench. Before I could talk to him about my conversation with Brother Michie and my fun new assignment, a member from the Bishopric stood up to start our meeting. As he went through his list of announcements, he made the announcement that the Choir is coming and if anyone in our congregation is interested in tickets, please contact Sister Ferguson (that's me!).

I watched from the corner of my eye as my hubby's head whipped over to look at me like, "What? Did you know about this?" (seriously, after ten years we can read our facial expressions very well). I just slightly nodded my head. He nodded back, then went back to listening to the announcements.

His reaction still puts a smile on my face. :)

So, if anyone wants to purchase tickets to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on June 25th at the Sprint Center, give me a call or send me an email. If you aren't LDS, you're welcome to purchase tickets through me and avoid extra fees from an online ticket company. The ticket prices are actually very reasonable. And the concert is going to be incredible!
