Wow. What an incredible last day of tour. We bid goodbye to Cheyenne and our gracious hosts on a brilliantly blue day, and arrived at the Denver Zoo about two hours later. From there, we were on our own for almost five hours to just wander and enjoy. I’ll post a few photos just to

On the road again – but first we drove to the beautiful Catholic church in Denver where we will be performing tomorrow night’s final concert. This was our only chance to rehearse in the space and figure out how and where to stand. I’ll put some photos of the church today, though there will be

We met the bus at 8 AM and had devotional and took care of some other business while en route to Littleton. We had time to spare, so we stopped at an outlet mall in New Castle to enrich their coffers. I think they were just waiting for us, as we were immediately greeted by

We awoke today happy after last night’s concert, sad to leave such wonderful hosts, but with just a bit of anticipation at the idea of possibly warmer weather. We drove through quite a bit of snow on the ground and bare trees as we traveled a mountain pass on our way to Pueblo. And what

We headed out this morning to see the Great Sand Dunes, only a short drive from Alamosa.

Today began in Colorado Spring on a bright, blue day. We had another chance to see this beautiful chapel in the daytime, and could actually see the mountains surrounding this unique city as we drove out of town.

The Sabbath has been a welcome respite after being on the run all of the last week. The choir was divided between several LDS wards, attending church meetings with their host families. Some lucky Singers were able to sleep in a little longer before church at 11, but I’m sure the ones who went at

April 30: Fort Collins to Colorado Springs, CO

Our day began with a rewarding session at CSU with the Chamber Singers, Dr. James Kim (their director) and Dr. Todd Queen (see previous post). Students of both choirs quickly found many commonalities in how they approach music, and how their conductors approach conducting, teaching, and life. We had a very interesting discussion about the

Our day began early, with everyone deposited by twos and threes at Rocky Mountain HS by 7:30 a.m. It takes dedicated students who love to sing to show up ready to make music at that hour, but this school has an amazing program filled with just those kinds of students. They apparently have a Friday

Day Three of our tour, and it dawned absolutely gorgeous. Such a deep blue sky! We spent several hours at the Denver LDS temple (in Centennial, actually) either in the temple or enjoying the beautiful grounds and warming weather. I’ll let the photos tell the story.
