Our 8th Annual Multi-Stake production of Rob Gardner's “Lamb of God"will be presented April 14th & 21st, 2019.  


REGISTRATION FOR SINGERS BEGINS ON FEBRUARY 1st THIS YEAR DUE TO THE LATER DATE OF EASTER.


This is a beautiful piece of music that powerfully testifies of Jesus Christ and I believe you will find peace and strength in your challenges as you make the sacrifice to attend rehearsals and as we unite together in telling this important story.

Our production features a 35-piece orchestra, 80-voice choir and soloists, conducted by Erin Guinup.

Singers must register to reserve their spot as participation is on a first come basis (As Easter is later this year, registration for 2019 begins at midnight on February 1, 2019 rather than January 1st). All are welcome to join us but the choir is limited by space to 20 people per section. Musical experience is helpful but not required- We believe the Spirit of this music will help strengthen your offering and overcome any weaknesses you may feel as you join your voices with us.

This program is sponsored by stakes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Many of the performers are members of the church but it is not required to be a member to participate.  All who love Jesus Christ are welcome to join us in singing this powerful work.




If you are new this year, you will want to spend some extra time reviewing the music and preparing. I highly recommend the purchase of Rob Gardner’s production with the London Symphony for getting better acquainted with this piece. Available from Spire Music or iTunes and other online sources.

The rehearsal schedule is below and you will note that it is a concise rehearsal schedule for a large work like this. We ask everyone to be at every rehearsal they possibly can.  If this is your first year, you may require some additional rehearsal on your own so that you feel truly comfortable with the music. Life happens and there may at times be a conflict but we ask that you try to minimize these where possible and do outside rehearsal if your schedule requires you to miss rehearsal. Since we will likely have a waiting list, please consider your participation carefully if you will be missing more than one rehearsal.

Thirteen vocal soloists, two narrators and a cello soloist are also part of this production. Auditions for vocal soloists and narrators will be held on Thursday, February 21st from 7-8:30pm at the Tacoma South Stake Center. Please prepare to sing a hymn or sacred solo for this audition. Potential narrators will read from the script.

I am eager to share this powerful piece with you and look forward to seeing you at our first rehearsal on February 23rd.

Sincerely, 
Erin Guinup
