Cincinnati/Lakeside

01.05
It’s snowing in Cincinnati! Turns out you’re never too old to play on the snow. I loved exploring the city in hat, scarf and gloves. Tsarina, thanks for throwing all that snow on me…

Sadly our first high school clinic was cancelled due to weather conditions, but we had a wonderful time singing for and with the Anderson High School Singers. They show great promise; perhaps some of them will be students at Westminster Choir College some day?

First performance tomorrow, hopefully see some of you there!

Before we left, we made sure to take in the delicacies of spaghetti and chili, and Graeters ice cream with the biggest chocolate chips I have seen in my life! On to Kentucky for our first performance and the church was really lovely. It was a great feeling to perform our tour program for the first time since November, getting back into the swing of things. I’m excited for how it will develop and improve over this tour. I love performing with these crazy people.

After the performance, we went to our home stays, and we were taken care of by such a kind and considerate couple. We ate angel food cake with freshly whipped cream and strawberries, and we talked about all sorts of things. They were delighted to get the international crew comprised of Liska, Xiaosha and me: three conductors from three different continents; it’s pretty awesome! Chuck owned two guitars and a ukulele so we ended up staying up far too late playing silly songs.

Next stop Nashville, Tennessee! During our concert, we share the ‘today I will’ statements of some of our audience, and I am one of the choir members who reads them out. Thanks to those of you who are happy to share, and I will leave you with two of the statements we read out in our Kentucky performance.

Today I will pray.

Today I will hear, and not just hear, but listen.
