    Nice pictures. Did you get to go? I missed it, but loved hearing all the great recaps of houw friendly Cincinnatians were to our world guests. It sounds like it was fantastic.

    Tessa-
    Definitely just watched, haha.

    Jon-
    They used to be called the Choir “Olympics.” So just what you’d imagine: choirs from around the world competing for gold/silver/bronze in various categories. Show, chamber, “scenic folk,” barbershop quartet, etc.

    Juliann-
    We did! We attended the final Champions Concert. That one pic is of emcee Drew Lachey, and the other is from a South African choir’s scenic folk piece. It was SO COOL!

    So was it like Glee?

    Well, the show choir was, but since we saw the Champions Concert, we only saw 1 show choir (i.e., the Champions). They did a pretty neat mash-up of stuff though, including “Good Life” by OneRepublic. :)

  9. Gorgeous photos!

    I miss going to Cincinnati. I grew up in Ohio and we’d drive down there to see the Reds :)

    I had no idea there was a choir olympics!

    I take it these are your photographs? They are really beautiful. You are an artist as well as a writer!

    Sherrie-
    You did?! I didn’t know that! (Or if I did, I forgot…) And yeah, we didn’t know there were choir Olympics either, until suddenly they were here. :P

    Michelle-
    Yes, they are, and thank you!

    Love the filter on these photos. Takes me back to the 70s :) I’ve never been to Cincinnati but these pix make it look glamorous!

    Lol I don’t know about “glamorous,” esp not compared to your Bay Area, but it’s shaping up. :)
