What a thrill it has been to come home to Owensboro and to see the excitement our friends and family have had with seeing our concert live at the Kennedy Center on line and also to see our trip in action on the blog. There were so many tours, monuments, concerts, practices, and activities that it is hard to believe that we were able to do so many things in such a short time.

Most of all, I am so proud of the way that our Kentucky Youth Chorale represented us in Washington DC. They not only performed with style and confidence but were good ambassadors of Owensboro with the way they behaved on the trip.

This has been the most wonderful choir trip and before we even got home we received and invitation to sing in England in 2011 at an International Festival in London. I am not sure we will do that yet but it does feel good to have been asked. BRAVI to all KYC members, teachers, accompanist, parents and the folks at NationsClassroom for making our trip so memorable. Our guides were first rate.
