Hi Neylan,
The funnest thing I was part of was creating the children/youth section of our ward choir back in CT. Originally it was started to deal with the high number of children and chaos in ward choir. But over four years it became a significant force for good in the lives of the children and the ward as a whole. Actually by the end there were more children in that choir then adults and many of them were more highly trained musicians then many of the adults. But most importantly the testimony those children sang with was extremely powerful. I miss them terribly!
