A beautiful day to drive from Corning, NY to Fishkill, NY for the last performance of this tour - in Poughkeepsie. How lucky we were to be able to see the leaves at almost the right moment. They'll be perfect in a week or so.
Our concert in the Skinner Hall of Music at Vassar College was one of the Barbara Woods Morgan Memorial Concerts - an endowment which enables the college to present the concerts free, first come first served. There was a line 90 minutes before the concert, 490 people got seats (including Vassar's President Hill who heard the buzz and slipped in), and about 10 were turned away. It's a hall we like to sing in (we were here a few years ago) and we were glad to come back to this very enthusiastic audience. Matt had given a masterclass for student choral singers earlier in the day, many of whom came to the concert.
Eric will always be happy to show pictures of his daughter Mia Isabel- now one month old. Eric's fans all over the country are keeping up with her.
The Reinhardt family turned out in force. Alan's parents pop up all over the place, and we're always glad to see them.
Home tomorrow for rehearsal (Christmas is coming!) and our Middle School Youth Choral Festival on October 23 when we'll spend a day with middle school choruses from around the Bay Area.
