  • 18 October 2015 - Jablonec

    Phew, these children are real soldiers! As I am typing my teeth are chattering in this ice cold church. It is a huge building, obviously dating from quite a while back, with no heating systems at all. The temperature inside is more or less the same...

  • 16 and 17 September 2015 - Jablonec

    The past two days whizzed past in a blur! We are not the only guest choir here in Jablonec to celebrate iuventus Gaude's 10th anniversary. Also here is the Lielvarde Children's Chorus from Latvia. The logistics of hosting so many people at once,...

  • 15 October 2015 - Sumperk to Jablonec

    Last night is something one would never be able to describe adequately. The concert was absolutely wonderful in a beautiful and packed to capacity venue. Motyli looked so good in their concert uniforms and had an interesting repertoire, including...

  • 14 October 2015 - Sumperk

    The morning dawned cold and rainy (although 6 degrees here is somehow very different from the same temperature at home, and I can truly say that it does not feel all THAT cold). This was fine for the day’s activities, though, and we could go...

  • 13 October 2015 - Sumperk and Svagrov

    Forgive me if I fall asleep halfway through this post! I see that Lyzet used the word 'momentous' in her WhatsApp message and I cannot think of anything better or more original. It was indeed a wonderful day.

  • 12 October 2015 - Brno to Sumperk

    We are very grateful for our (sometimes a bit sporadic) access to electronic communications, as we love the fact that half of Port Elizabeth is touring along with us. Something we will never be able to fully convey, though, is the warmth and love...

  • 11 October 2015 - Brno

    It is now just after three and we are in the Kantilena rehearsal venue taking a nap before our rehearsal in the church a bit later.

  • 10 October 2015 - Prague to Brno

    This morning we said a sad goodbye to our wonderful hosts in Prague. There were quite a few tears shed and it was so touching to see how quickly our children crawled into the hearts of their hosts. Without fail every host is SO complimentary about...

  • 9 October 2015 - Prague

    Friday morning dawned cold but at least dry and we could do our city tour that we couldn't do yesterday. We drove to the magnificent Prague Castle which is listed as the largest ancient castle in the world. It also houses a beautiful church; we were...

  • 8 October 2015 - Prague

    It is now Friday lunch time and for the first time I have some opportunity to write about yesterday's adventures. It was indeed a long and busy day - it is not so easy to leave home at 7am and only return after the concert, but we managed and had a...

  • 7 October 2015 - Halle to Prague

    So, here we are, about a 100km from Prague. Today did not happen exactly as planned, thanks to the rainy weather, but maybe that was a good thing after the past few very busy days.

  • 6 October 2015 - Halle

    So, here we are in the Ulrichskirche Concert Hall in Halle. The Kinderchor der Stadt Halle entertained us with some interesting repertoire before the break and now the audience is applauding while the ECCC is walking onto the stage. There is an...

  • 5 October 2015: Goodbye Hamburg, Autostadt, Wolfsburg and hello Halle!

    So, here we are at four o’ clock in the afternoon on our way to Halle from Wolfsburg and we are still in Wolfsburg, stuck in the WORST traffic jam in choir tour history! The ambulance came past with sirens screaming like crazy, so we assume...

  • Sunday 4 October 2015 - Mass at St Thomas-Beckett Anglican Church, St Michaelis Church and Harbour Cruise

    This morning we met at 9 for warm-ups at the St. Thomas-Beckett Anglican Church here in Hamburg. The English priest's first words to me were that their household is currently in mourning, as the English lost to Australia and the Scots to South...

  • 3 October 2015 - And our first concert is done

    Wow, we've had a wonderful day! After a lazy (very much needed, I'll have you know) start, we all met up at 13h00 for our first concert. Happy smiles and thumbs-up signs are all we received. The children were competing to tell us the reason why THEY...

    Wow, it is really hard to believe that we are approaching the one month mark before take-off! Europe is slowly waking up from its summer holiday slumber and the final, nitty gritty details are being arranged. Some interesting facts:
