Today we officially began our 2015 tour! We left PLU around 3:45pm and were seen off by PLU’s Choir of the West. We enjoyed a peaceful bus ride to Longview Community Church, where we rolled out the programs for the first time and debuted our set. We were particularly impressed by the church itself, as the exterior looked like a castle standing in the middle of Longview.
The church treated us to a wonderful dinner before the concert, and made us feel extremely welcome the entire time we were there.
The men in Chorale got a bit of exercise when they were tasked with moving the piano up about 3 feet onto the stage.
In the end concert went well, and we were proud to hear that the community enjoyed having us there. As of now, the choir is tucked in for the night at different home stay houses, getting to know their hosts, and resting up for our exchanges with Union High School and Heritage High School tomorrow. We will be performing our full set again tomorrow night at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Portland, so come on out if you’re in the area!
