Wednesday, July 4th
Our final full day in London, and what a busy day it was.
We were up early this morning for breakfast and then out to Knightsbridge for some final site seeing, lunch, and last minute souvenier shopping. Then off to our Dress Rehearsal!
2:30 pm Dress rehearsal begins with the Royal International Orchestra of Academia in Cadogan Hall, home to the Royal Philharmonic, soloists, and a world of singers!
5:30 pm Dress rehearsal is finished. 20 minutes to grab a bite to eat, then change, and be on stage by 7pm!
7:30 pm The concert beings, finishing with Beethoven's 9th Symphony "Choral" as the finale! What a way to end a fabulous year of music making!!!!!
9:15 pm We say our goodbyes to the other choirs and it is off to dinner at Belgo Centraal, a Belgian restaurant. We sit, we eat, we laugh (and we sang...what else should be expected???!!!)...off to the hotel to pack!
This has truly been a trip of a lifetime!!!!
