• 2016 Concert Choir Tour to Long Beach, CA

Day 4!

We started off the day with a bus tour of Hollywood and downtown LA where we learned about different buildings and streets where parts of famous movies were filmed.

We did some sightseeing around the Chinese Theater and had fun looking at all the different stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Nuala was very excited to discover that her feet are the same size as Josh Hutcherson's! We also took a group picture in front of the Hollywood sign!

We continued on our bus tour and sang an impromptu concert in front of Walt Disney Hall. They can now say that they've all sung at the Walt Disney Hall! :-) Lunch was a yummy buffet of Mexican tacos at El Paseo Inn, followed by some shopping time on Olvera street, a mini Mexico.

We ran into Ken Abrams and his choir from San Ramon Valley High School. Ken worked with most of our singers when they were in the Training Department, so we were all excited to see him. The two choirs exchanged songs and many smiles. 

This evening, the kids sang a joint concert with the Immaculate Heart of Mary Children's Choir, who were participants in our last Golden Gate Festival. The choirs sang two songs together-- Da Kami and Sing All Ye Joyful. Both choirs sounded wonderful and received standing ovations at the end of their sets! Videos to follow later.

Back in the hotel, we had our last evening group activity and some bonding time, which included story time and a gymnastics competition. Tomorrow we are headed to the Santa Monica Pier and then are headed home!
