Nathan sang just two songs. His solo wasn't listed in the programme and I am ashamed to say that I don't remember the title. It was on a Holiday (i.e. Christmas) theme. Something in the back of my mind is saying Frank Sinatra, but I'm not sure of that.
Nathan opened with the first verse of 'O Holy Night' before Katherine appeared to join him in duet. It was one of the best performances of that song that I have heard and Nathan's cadenza in the last verse was magnificent.
Nathan was happy to sign autographs and pose for photos with the brave souls who had waited an hour in the cold outside the stage door after the show. I'm sure he knew that most were really waiting for Katherine but he didn't let that affect his attitude.
Nathan, Lindsey Sterling and contemporary vocalist , James Taylor will be performing with the Utah Symphony Orchestra and the legendary Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the Pioneer Day Concert on July 19th and 20th in Salt Lake City, Utah. I don't know how Lindsey got involved in this concert but it will certainly be a wonderful opportunity to see her in person.
I knew Lindsey was from California but after a bit more reading, I found she attended Brigham Young University which is in Salt Lake City, Utah. The committee for the annual event was trying to put a bit more of a contemporary feeling to the concert. They knew about Lindsey and the fact that she attended BYU, sealed the deal. This event is so popular in Utah and with Lindsey performing, tickets will be very difficult to obtain.
Nathan will be performing with Lindsey Sterling and the Morman Tabernacle Choir in Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday, July 18th, 2013. It is mountain time zone which is two hours before eastern standard time. You can watch with air streaming: www.motab.org/pioneer2013
I forgot to add there is a terrific interview with Lindsey on Google during her rehearsals. She is so excited because the venue of the Mormon Tabernacle venue seats 28,000. She said she never dreamed of performing in front of an audience anywhere near this size and it was a bit frightening.
The Temple Square in Salt Lake City held 28,000 people for a magnificent concert tonight. The venue is immense, choir and orchestra awesome. The air streaming had it's problems. First we were hearing Spanish and Portugese in the background. When Nathan Pacheco sang his first song, Avatar, it became apparent that there was a time delay and that song and his second in Italian were ruined. The orchestra played a song by Secret Garden and the time delay was corrected. Lindsey appeared and looked lovely. But the arrangement of flowers along the stage and the fog almost obliterated her feet. Lindsey brought me to tears with her explanation of her second song, Poor Little Lamb. It was a song her grandfather's men sang in World War II and he sang it for Lindsey's mother as a lullaby. Lindsey dedicated the song to her grandfather. Nathan returned to sing Nessun Dorma and received a standing ovation. I wish that the concert was being repeated but the website and YouTube show nothing.
