This summer I got a really great job at the Shops at the Riverwoods in North Provo.  I got to perform regularly and learned how to work the sound equipment.  I would set up for the performances before the bands got there, hook them up and do sound checks, and make sure the sound was balanced well throughout the show.  Sam came a lot and would help me with all of the heavy speakers and sound checks.  I also got to perform a lot, and learned new songs that I could find mp3 tracks for online.  I bought most of my tracks off of Amazon, and it was interesting to sing with a monitor and microphone.  I liked being performing so often, and the more casual setting was really fun.  Here are some pictures of me performing.  
Enjoying a show with some shoppers. 
Setting up one of the bands.  
Getting ready to perform!  We always went to Marley's Sliders to get big water cups.  
Songs on my set included:   
Til There Was You (Music Man), Unexpected Song (Song and Dance), Think of Me (Phantom of the Opera), O Mio Babbino Caro (Gianni Schicci), The Last Rose of Summer, The Prayer, I've Never Been in Love Before and I'll Know (Guys and Dolls), Quando M'en Vo (La Boheme), Over the Rainbow (Wizard of Oz), Ach ich fuhls (Magic Flute), Home (Beauty and the Beast), Some Enchanted Evening, Tonight (West Side Story)
I never did manage to memorize much of my music...
