The church and Jay Clayton's voice turned out to be a perfect match!
We were all listening in rapture to the amazing echo & reverberations, they seemed to have been made for this space.

During the tech-rehearsal Matt Turney (right) and an unidentified pedestrian from Two Girls Downtown Iowa got to dance together.
