Chicago and Midwest Tour 2018!

The C Choir had a great trip to Chicago and the Midwest! They sang at a festival in Chicago with several other Children's Choirs from around the nation with special guest conductor, Lynnel Joy Jenkins. The final festival performance was at the beautiful St. James Cathedral. It was magnificent! Also in Chicago they had lots of FUN with free time, shopping, sight-seeing, a Lake Michigan Boat Cruise, and a special Senior dessert night! 

 

Next on the trip was a stop at Valparaiso University, Ms. Davidson's Alma mater, to sing in the Valparaiso Chapel. Then it was a visit to Amish County in Shipshewana, IN! The choir enjoyed dinner at an Amish farm and after dinner everyone sang songs for each other. A truly beautiful moment sharing music together.

 

The next day the choir gave a concert in Coldwater, MI at First Baptist Church of Coldwater. Ms. Davidson is a 1977 graduate of Coldwater High School and it is always so special to bring the choir back to her home town to perform! After the concert, it was time for cookies at Grandma Myrt's house!

A note from Ms. D about the Chicago Trip 2018:

 "My heart is filled with gratitude to our chaperones, trip leader Michelle Sublett, and all the choristers who make me so proud. It is beautiful to watch our choristers not only sing, but interact as team players, kind and helpful everywhere we go. Thank you for making this trip such a joy. Lots of love to all our choir families who are truly like family to me." - Ms. D ️
