In the spring of 2004, Dan Harris, co-anchor of ABC News' Nightline and Good Morning America, had a televised freak-out in front of 5 million people. The cause was his well-hidden drug use. Realizing he needed to get his life under control, he embarked on an educational journey, exploring everything from mainstream religion to the bizarre corners of self-help before discovering that meditation was the key to his happiness. In this event, Harris reads from his new book, 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works -- A True Story, sharing his spiritual conversion for both skeptics and believers.

This is a review for the Concert on Saturday, not the film as the title above seems to be inconsistent....but anyway...concert was overall very enjoyable. The selection of pieces performed was varied, most interesting and many were new to me. Keeping in mind that many of the singers were high school age, although not always a flawless performance, it was well executed. Not all solo voices were really strong enough for the music they were performing (Mozart's "Regina Coeli" in particular). Two highlights for me were Sydney Bell's "Flower of Beauty" and the Lauridsen (of course)--both just gorgeous works.
