Today was our busiest day since arrival - we had three singing gigs! The last one was at Midnight....phewwwwww! What a day!
We considered stopping our blogging here as we're are soooooooo exhausted however.....we know you are eagerly awaiting our tales - so here we go........
Today we participated in three performances; we sang with 11 choirs in the morning, including Russia, Italy, South Africa, as well as 5 Italian and 3 choirs from Israel. The evening concert included HHM Alumnae choir plus 3 others, including 2 Italian and one choir from Israel. We rushed by bus from our evening concert to our midnight gig at the choir festival at Piazza Von Kurz in Villabassa where choirs performed one piece each throughout the entire evening. At the midnight gig we sang an exuberant rendition of Singing in the Rain.....using our Canada umbrellas......once again the crowd was WOWed and even called for an encore (which we weren't allowed to deliver due to time restraint :)
That's it for the singing aspect of today - now - back at the hotel for the afternoon we finally had some relaxation time. Many tracks were made to the local (small) supermarket where they sell food, wine, beer...........did I mention wine?........And did I mention that Pinot Grigio is the local specialty???? Well........we have depleted their supply of Pinot Grigio!
Really......the afternoon was fabulous - the weather is spectacular, the location is exquisite and the villa has charm galore.....what more could we ask for.......FABULOUS time!
We'll be back to tell you about tomorrow.......soon......bye for now!
