Romania tour blog no 3.
Thursday was our only day without a concert! We travelled by coach from Bucharest, the capital city, to Brasov in Transylvania, the mountainous area of Romania.
It was fun to explore the picturesque town of Brasov, and enjoy the local restaurants and cafes. Some ventured up the hillside beyond the city walls to get the view from the White and Black Towers.
Heavy rainshowers moved in, and some very wet singers boarded the coach to the hotel at 5pm. The view of a rainbow from the hotel almost made up for the drenching!
We had all been looking forward to our special choir evening together, starting with a lovely meal. This was then followed by a BFCS ‘soirée’ always the highlight of our tours! We were treated to song, comedy, and instrumental music, showcasing the talents of our singers.
Our special tour guest Sidney, 10 month old son of David (our conductor) and Alexandra (our soprano soloist), enjoyed the music and all the attention!
The evening ended with a comedy version of the Abba song, with us all joining in the chorus. The words “Thank you for the music” seemed a very fitting way to end the evening.
