Pursuing Musical Excellence

Hello from Canterbury!

We are nearly finished the first official day of the International Children’s Choir Festival in Canterbury and London, England!

We arrived safely without mishap on Friday, July 22nd. Friday and Saturday were spent sightseeing: we saw Big Ben and Westminster Abbey from the London Eye, walked past Egyptian mummies in the British Museum, and took a river cruise down the Thames.

Our tour guide and bus picked us up on Sunday morning and took us to see Windsor Castle before arriving at our first official stop, Canterbury.

This morning we rehearsed with 5 other choirs from around the world, and then PMCC performed a short solo concert in the quire at Canterbury Cathedral. What an amazing (and nerve-wracking) experience!

We are excited for more such amazing experiences, and will post another update soon. Thank-you for your prayers for us, we are grateful for God’s protection thus far.
