Recently a retiree Air Force choir gathered together to share music at Utah State University. The reunion focused on American music to remember and share experiences they had as the Singing Sergeants. Before becoming director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Dr. Craig Jessop was asked to audition to become director of the U.S. Air Force Singing Sergeants. "I had never heard of them. I said, 'The singing what?'" Jessop said. "I thought these are probably guys who fix airplanes during the day and get together with a couple of beers and sing at night. But no, I was assured this was a full-time professional choir."
