I’ll start with the end of the day, because we are still glowing from watching the kids’ first performance. Wow! The singers performed with the Athenry Youth Orchestra, and they were outstanding!
The highlight of this evening was when the choir finished their performance, the kids from the orchestra, their peers from another country, led the standing ovation.
Then the orchestra performed, and the ovation was returned enthusiastically! The finale, a joint performance of “Let There Be Peace”…our conductor conducted, and their conductor played! What a wonderful way to begin the singers’ performances for this trip!
