To ensure that we haven’t left anyone behind, we count off and everyone has a number. We have now increased our number by one. Meet number 53, aka Herbert. Our bus driver was made an honorary choir member today when he was presented with an ISing polo and officially dubbed, number 53. Welcome Herbert!

This evening we had a wonderful opportunity to sing with the Kammerchor at the Stadtpfarrkirche Maria Himmelfahrt, a cathedral in Burgau. They welcomed us with a reception of cakes and pretzels. Delicious! We tried to not stuff ourselves before the concert.

After the performance, we had dinner with our host choir at the Gasthof. This time we made no such attempts to hold back on stuffing ourselves. The food was wonderful and the company, even better.

The invitation has been extended to Herwig Nerdinger and the Kammerchor to visit ISing in Oregon. This was done primarily through bribery. Steven Galvan brought Pinot Noir from the northwest to share with our hosts.
