The Florida portion of our tour is now done, and boy did it fly by quickly. I'm sitting on the coach now doing a long drive from Gainesville, FL to Chattanooga, TN, where we'll break before another several hours tomorrow to Louisville, KY for our next concert tomorrow night.
Our first concert in Vero Beach was at a gorgeous church north of Port Saint Lucie. From there, we headed to Naples, FL for a concert at their huge concert hall. We then crossed back over the state to reside for a few days in Riviera Beach, just north of West Palm Beach.
BBC Radio Recordings...Check!
Our two concerts at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach were great, and we got three terrific reviews as well:
The next day, we performed at the stunning Arsht Center in Miami, and then had a free day on the beach in Riviera Beach! I was so happy that Stella was able to come down for a few days, though she had to head back to New York this morning. It was wonderful seeing her~ :)
Onward and Upward!
We gave a concert at the University of Florida in Gainesville, last night, and are now heading way up north for the second half of the tour. It has been an absolute blast working with Maestro Keith Lockhart and everyone in the BBC Concert Orchestra, who have all been tremendously warm and welcoming. :)
