The Wrong Venue - The Right Sounds

Oh you never know what is going to happen when you book a concert.  We were asked to sing for a senior's group at a church I thought was just down the road.  Well I assumed I knew where I was going and you know what it means to ASSUME.  We showed up where I thought we should be and the caretaker was very confused.  A quick call to my hubby and a call to my contact and we found out we were in exactly the wrong place.  Right place found and my wonderful choir took everything in stride.  They just don't blink.

We sang after a quick warm up and the audience was very receptive and the choir totally amazing.  We did a sing along (for which I forgot the sheets with the words for the audience).  However, it didn't stop the singing and we had lots of fun.

Our newest offering, Because We Believe, was just great.  Oh yes, we have a couple of spots that will be smoothed out but it was a crowd pleaser.

I fully intended to have pictures but our sojourn at the beginning kind of put me off my plan.  That's my story and I am sticking to it.

Whoops! ETS is really good at taking things in their stride though. I think because they are all there for the love the music, that sort of thing wouldn't throw them off. Plus their love the music comes across even if things aren't perfectly smooth and it carries them through.
