Heartsongs: Melodies of Love highlights some of the world's all-time favorite love songs in a vibrant musical journey through the rollercoaster of life. With show tunes from award-winning Broadway musicals Cinderella, Singin? In the Rain and Thoroughly Modern Millie along with international hits by The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Michael Bublé, Adele and Michael Jackson, the performance celebrates life's unforgettable seasons of love in a spirited 90-minute showcase that is appropriate for family members of all ages.

Wearing colorful costumes and filling the stage with a kaleidoscope of dance and musical styles, the Young Ambassadors' concerts provide a glimpse of their unique vision of international understanding, born from decades of goodwill tours around the world. Dance styles range from tap to the syncopated rhythms of the Caribbean islands, while featuring the next generation of contemporary sounds and choreography.

The Young Ambassadors will be joined on stage by some of the group's alumni and accompanied by a live 10-piece show band featuring some of BYU's finest instrumental performers. These musicians' animated performances enhance each number so audiences always get what they came for: a night of talent and entertainment in every facet of the performance.

Over the past 45 years, the Young Ambassadors have shared their remarkable talent and energy in almost 70 countries. The 2013-2014 touring season included performances in Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia. Next season, the Young Ambassadors will tour throughout Utah, Idaho, Nevada, California and Illinois.

The group traveled to Australia in 2008 for a special three-week tour, which included a performance for the legislators in the Queensland State Parliament in Brisbane. The Young Ambassadors have also performed for heads of state in India, Britain, Jordan, Egypt, Japan and the United States. Since 2000, the Young Ambassadors have performed in Brazil; Argentina; Canada; Russia; Australia; Hong Kong; Korea; Japan; Tasmania, Africa; twice in China; throughout Scandinavia; and all over the United States, including at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

The Young Ambassadors represent the School of Music in cooperation with the Department of Dance from the BYU College of Fine Arts and Communications.

That may soon change. Recently, students from BYU’s College of Engineering teamed up with Nanos Foundation to develop a nanofiber membrane that can be sandwiched between the cloth pieces in a homemade mask, increasing efficacy up to 99%.
