Snapshot #923: Memorial Church

October 15, 2013.  Palo Alto, California.  I can't believe that I've been this close to Stanford for over two years and last night was my first time on campus.  Dave and I attended the LDS Convocation at the Memorial Church, featuring keynote speaker and choral conductor Craig Jessop.  I understand why the LDS church doesn't spend gaudy amounts of money on embellishing over-the-top architecture for their churches and temples (keeping them more-or-less functional) but man, listening to Jessop's choir in that church...the experience was transcendent!  "The influence of music has the power to free the soul, " said Craig Jessop.
