Very inspiring to be surrounded by flowers on a slightly chilly but beautiful evening at the Mission Santa Clara, on the campus of Santa Clara University. It's one of only two missions named for a female saint, and is the only one on a college campus... just so you know. This mission is a regular stop for us, a great place to perform, and the audience is full of very very longstanding Chanticleer fans. Many have been fans since before some of us were born. They always inspire us with their rapt attention. And, of course, standing o's are very nice too. This was our fourth performance of "Romantic Chanticleer" - we'll sing it in Walnut Creek on Friday, Napa on Saturday, and San Francisco on Sunday, which will bring our 2010-11 Bay Area season to a close.
