Friday, was probably one of the most rememberable days. We sang at Hammond High School. We spent the morning performing for their choir classes and hearing them perform for us. Then during lunch there was a session where students who were interested in learning more about Judson could come meet with some of the choir members and talk to a Judson Recruiter. Then in the afternoon, because of snow in February, the school was holding their Black History Month assemblies and asked us to sing in them. Yes, the school was so big that they had to have two so that half of the school could attend the first one and the other half of the school could attend the second one. It was a great opportunity for us to participate in and we got to watch all of the performances during the first assembly. The choir performed, a guitar ensemble played, the dance class did a routine, and the drama class did a couple of skits. Between the first assembly and our performance in the second we, waited in the choir room. Their Boy's Ensemble took this opportunity to sing to us, and let me tell you, if you want to get a Judson Girls attention have a guy with a really good voice sing to her! When we were finished at the school we traveled south to Virginia.
On Saturday we spent the day in Norfolk, Virginia. We toured St. Paul's Episcopal Church and had the opportunity to sing from their balcony. It was one of the most amazing sounds I have ever heard. Then we went to the Freemasons Abbey for lunch and spent some time by the river. Once we had enjoyed the sunshine for a while we continued on to North Carolina, where we spent the rest of our trip....To Be Continued.
