Spectacular Looks to A Season for Courage
BYU will highlight the lives of several of its alumni who have triumphed in the face of tremendous adversity as it celebrates A Season for Courage during BYU Spectacular Oct. 10 and 11 in the Marriott Center.
"We live in a world where extraordinary courage is necessary," says artistic director Janielle Christensen. "It seemed only natural that with a Homecoming theme that emphasizes courage, we would seek people who have overcome tremendous personal, spiritual and academic challenges."
As has become traditional with the annual showcase, a talent display of BYU's performers will advance the evening. This year the performers will include Young Ambassadors, Living Legends, Women's Chorus, Wind Symphony, Cougarettes, and the Colleen West tap class.
Part of the evening will also honor George H. Brimhall, an early BYU president and the 2013 Founder.
