Ned Rorem in Salt Lake City - between early January, 1967 and late January, 1967

from The Later Diaries of Ned Rorem 1961-1972, page 208:

The Symphony of Psalms sung by a chorus of 450 high school students from the foothills, the girls nymphets with hair the color of candied yams, the boys just past a ruddy puberty and mouthing this suave music with the look of lost lambs. But the experience was moving if only because they were so very young.
