    Nobody can ask for a better homecoming reception! Thank you to every parent, brother, sister, cousin and friend who waited outside the arrival hall. Thank you for the flowers, the hugs, the smiles and the waves! We had a wonderful tour and this was...

    Nobody was disappointed today. We woke up to yet another day of perfect weather and were quickly underway to Flumsberg in the Alps, the postcard picture perfect landscape getting more perfect by the kilometer.

    As promised, everyone was allowed to sleep in this morning and we were met with much brighter eyes (adults and children alike). We had a warm-up rehearsal at the church, before going on a leisurely stroll through the Village of Bülach. Our...

    Our concert last night was extremely well received by an audience that included a number of very young children. Not without its technical difficulties (here our accompanists showed their mettle and, once again, proved the importance of having only...

    We boarded the bus with heavy hearts this morning, as it was still overcast and grey. Apparently it had snowed at Chamonix Mt Blanc all of last night, but the apparent fog warned us not to be too excited about seeing said snow.

    We had a long day today, starting with a rehearsal at the Collége Genevieve Antonioz-de Gaulle, a so-called middle school for children from grade 4 to grade 9 (10 to 15 years). One of the music teachers taught us a canon, which we were to...

    Hello from France! Most of today was spent on the bus, but the scenery was worth it. But wait, I am getting ahead of myself. First, something about last night’s concert: We are so proud of our choristers and the way they sing better and better...

    The temperature has really dropped and suddenly we are seeing a lot more scarves and gloves around. Our walk around the town of Donaueschingen yesterday was very interesting. The town is the hometown of the Fürstenberg family, of which only...

    Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed is how we gathered this morning, after a very welcome early night for all. Some of us heard the thunder last night as the past week's sunshine made space for some clouds and rain.

    One thing about our tours is that our hosts manage to keep us busy for most of the day AND night! This means that, sometimes, we have to choose to rather sleep the 5 hours available to us, than to write the web journal or load photos!

    We started the day with an early rehearsal before we took to the road to see the town of Speyer and the world’s largest Romanesque cathedral. First Dr Eichenlaub (from the Südpfalzlerchen) played tour guide, and took us on a short tour of...

    We had our last rehearsal this afternoon, suitcases are in the process of being packed and we CANNOT believe that we have to go through another four days of school before the big day arrives!
