61 members of Performing Choir, Camerata and Concert Level have returned with many wonderful stories of a very successful three week tour to the USA.
During the 22 day tour, the girls were hosted with choirs and schools and were involved in 24 performances and workshops. Travelling to destinations including San Francisco, Phoenix, Flagstaff, Palm Springs and Los Angeles, the cultural and performance experiences were many and varied. They included:
- Public performances at Ghirardelli Square San Francisco, Heritage Square Flagstaff and Universal Studios Citywalk Los Angeles
- Singing the National Anthem at the home football game at Rancho Mirage High School in Palm Springs
- Combined concerts and workshops with host schools and choirs including Piedmont Hills HS, St Francis HS, Phoenix Children’s Chorus, Dobson HS, Herrara Elementary, Flagstaff Youth Chorale, Knoles Elementary, Sechrist Elementary, Rancho Mirage HS, Cathedral City HS, Los Robles Children’s Choir, Oaks Christian School and Los Angeles County High School for Performing Arts. Performances in each of our destinations received standing ovations.
- Visiting famous landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge and Pier 39 in San Francisco; the town of Sedona and the Grand Canyon; the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens in Palm Springs; Hollywood Boulevard, the Chinese Theatre and Universal Studios in Los Angeles.
We have received many positive comments from host families and schools, audience members and the general public, which have reflected what outstanding ambassadors our touring choristers were, not only for the choir, but our country. Congratulations to all girls involved, we are very proud of your achievements!
