An epic culinary feast of local specialties such as creamy, slightly stinky Brie de Meaux and lots of tasty wine was to follow, cooked by a local chef and served picnic style in the castle’s annex. The day before, the 110 singers were the featured guest choir at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on July 4th, after singing in London just days before that and with so much more yet to come in Italy and at the Vatican including an exclusive recital in the Sistine Chapel. While this combination of an concert tour and parallel shadow experience was one of our busier ones, it was also what Mr. Bruce Koliha had wanted for his farewell from teaching and touring: “It really was everything you promised… and then some! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU ALL.”
We have to say Merci, Grazie and Dankeschön.
