Today began with a bus tour of Dublin-fascinating, but the photos are rather blurry! What a neat city, steeped in history. After the tour, the singers and parents had lunch in downtown Dublin, and we had a bit of free time to explore. Parents had more time than the kids, as they had to head off to rehearse for their final concert of this trip tonight. So, with a sunny afternoon in Dublin at my disposal, I enjoyed an ice cream cone while wandering around the beautiful St. Stephen’s Green.
This park was developed and built by the Guinness family, and then donated back to the people of Dublin. What a fantastic place to wander and enjoy! This evening, we were welcomed into a lovely modern cathedral-with astounding acoustics! The floral arrangement and the audience of 300+ people was such a wonderful way to end the performance part of this trip. It was so moving to hear the singers perform and hear the audience’s appreciation of their talents. They have really grown as an ensemble this week, and tonight showcased their talent!
