Jace writes from Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh was a lovely experience. We arrived to the venue (Shadyside Presbyterian Church) and were immediately inspired by the beautiful space, with a gorgeous mosaic at the rear of the altar.
The crowd was quietly attentive, clinging to each word. As far as anyone could remember, we haven't been there in over 10 years, and the crowd was packed to the rafters. We saw several old friends in the audience, including former colleagues and past attendees of the Chanticleer in Sonoma Workshop. It was good to reconnect and perform for the enthusiastic crowd, who gave us a standing ovation at the end.
