Over the course of my next few blogs I will be telling you the stories of our choir tour during Spring Break. I hope you enjoy!
March at Judson, like most months, is bustling. Every year choir tour is during Spring Break and I was finally able to fit choir into my schedule this semester, so my friends and I were super excited I was able to join them on tour this year. This was our choir director, Dr. Ransom's, first time doing something like this. She planned a fantastic trip for us.
We started way too early in the morning at Judson on Tuesday March 16th and headed to North Carolina. Dr. Ransom had arranged for us to take a nice, big charter bus. Our first day was just traveling. We arrived in High Point, North Carolina and ate supper at a host's home around 6:30 p.m. or so before we met our host families at the churches.
My roommate on this trip was my Judson little sister Kaylee Crenshaw. It was a good way for us to get to know each other a little bit better and just hang out. Our first host home was the Coulters. Students Amanda Fee and Katlin Bailey also stayed with us.
Wednesday morning our first stop was Southwest Guilford High School. We performed for them and then their Honors Choir sang a little for us. We took a little break for some recruiting with Christine Gold (JC Admissions recruiter) who we were so glad to have join us on the trip. We did one more session and then went out to eat lunch at a place called K&W Cafeteria. Afterward, we finished up our day performing at Penn-Griffin Fine Arts High School. Their girls honor choir sang for us and then it was our turn. When we finished there, we loaded up the bus again and headed out for Glenwood, Maryland which is about half an hour outside of Baltimore. We met our host families at the church around 10:30 p.m. We chatted for a little bit and got past the formalities of introductions and then we settled in for a short night's sleep.
