Steve and I loading up (notice us posing while poor Vi is hefting boxes in the background…oops, sorry!)
We got on and then counted off. Each singer in the group has a number associated with them. (I happen to be lucky number 13.) It is VCC tradition that if a female singer wants to announce to the choir she was pregnant she would list off her number then her number plus a half. John Trotter our assistant conductor is only staying on tour with us a couple of days, because his ”half” is actually “seven-eighths” and fatherhood is imminent.
It may be the last time we see him this awake for a long time…
The trip to Vernon has some pretty amazing scenery:
We made great time and were in Vernon before you know it. We got to the hotel, put our stuff away, got our music ready and went to a sound check at the theater.
Backstage they have hundreds of posters of different groups who have performed in the Vernon Centre for the Performing Arts.
In the green room, just chillin’ after our sound check.
We then went for dinner, got changed and sang the show.
The lobby after the concert where we got a chance to talk to the audience.
After the show, since it was someone’s birthday, we went for a celebratory drink (like we need an excuse).
Happy Birthday!! :)
