The honor choir started out the day today with rehearsal first thing this morning. I think there were a few tired kids after the late night last night.
From rehearsal, we boarded the bus and headed downtown Chicago. We spent a good portion of the day at Shedd Aquarium with a dolphin show and lunch mixed in.
Next came the nerve test of the day. 25 of the 29 people ventured to the 103rd floor of Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) to step out on the glass floor. Most went out on the ledge and there were even some who dared headstands looking straight down 1,353 feet to the ground below. The choir then performed for everyone in the Skydeck getting wonderful reviews.
After joining up with the whole group, we walked from Willis Tower to Millennium Park with a bypass to stop in front of Orchestra Hall where the concert will be tomorrow night.
Wrapping up the night with a banquet dinner for all participants of the Festival of Gold and both Mass Choir and Honor Choir rehearsals it's time to call it a night. Tomorrow is the big competition at Fourth Presbyterian Church in downtown Chicago and the concert tomorrow night in Orchestra Hall.
So for now from Chicago, we wish you all a good night.
