Idaho State University, Pocatello, Idaho

When this concert building was being built I was worried about how ISU would fill its main 1200-seat concert hall. But the hall's superb acoustics is proving to be a great draw for performers and audiences alike. On June 17th 2005 the Mormon (LDS) Tabernacle Choir sang, and I thought I could get a ticket at the door since I forgot to buy one when it went on sale last month or so. No way! The tickets sold out, at $40 a piece, just 20 minutes after they started to sell them! (Pocatellans are used to concerts that are free or cost less than $10, often subsidized by the university.) However, I got to photograph the building with a red Utah Trailways bus and dramatic skies! There are now even a few tiny trees planted around the building, though things would look even nicer after they've grown. I also think that the bare patch of ground with ugly white flags should be planted with native vegetation like sagebrush, etc., but who knows what they'll plant there. I'll be back to photograph the building again in not too long, I'm sure, and we'll see what they plant there!
