So, yeah, we're on the west coast. WWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Anyways, it's been an amazing trip so far. I'm in Pasadena, CA right now. Stars are out, a nice big moon, and it's WARM!! Well, ok, warmer then home right now. But I'll take what I can get. And I wore SANDELS today! It's been so long.
We're selling Men's Chorus CD's that were recorded a year ago. Our director made us the deal that if we broke even with the CD's (selling about 2/3 boxes of them) by the end of the trip, we could work on recording one of our own. Tonight we finished off our 3rd box (Each box has ~150 CD's)!! We're having another box of albums overnighted to the church we're singing at tomorrow night so that we have some to sell/gift away. I'm pretty proud of this because I'm on the CD crew, greeting people after the concert and selling CD's.
Another highlight of the trip was yesterday in San Fransico. We had the amazing opportunity to sing a short concert in Grace Cathedral. This was probably the most moving concert, and what I would have given to sit in the audience to have heard it. We sang Audoramus Te and Ave Maria, both of which were pretty much written to be sung in cathedrals like this. When the organ prelude was done (it was mesmorizing), I counted the seconds of reverberation out to over 6 seconds, and then it was only because someone started talking. Incredible.
We have a tour blog going with really cool pictures at www.goshen.edu/blog/menschorus07
Anyways, we finish our tour with two concerts, one in Samburg, IL on Saturday evening, and at College Mennonite Church in Goshen, IN on Sunday. It's free admission, and starts at 7:30 I believe. Email me if you're thinking about coming to either. Love you all!
Go in peace.
