Notes from a tour manager – The ultimate reception in Philadelphia
The Creole Choir of Cuba’s reception in Philadelphia has been terrific.
This city has been waiting to see the Choir since January, and our concert last night at the Painted Bride was what they had been waiting for.
This morning’s visit to the Independence Charter School was a great success. First a group of second graders and then a group of fifth graders, laughing and crying and dancing and singing with the Choir.
At the workshop for professional singers at the Painted bride Theatre this evening the Creole Choir of Cuba received a Citation from the City of Philadelphia. See the photos below!
We have a packed day tomorrow. We are off to Washington at 07.30 tomorrow morning.
