With all the messy reassigning of flights and having to hurry up and wait for what seemed like endless hours, with no sleep and haphazard eating arrangements, the students were flawless in their attitude and comportment. There were no complaints, no tantrums, no foot-dragging or bad attitudes – nothing. Just resignation when things didn’t go as planned, sardonic smiles and groans and, through it all, a feeling of “Oh well, at least we’re in this together.” It shouldn’t continually surprise me that our students are exemplary, in their music making and how they handle themselves, but I find that I am continually impressed and proud to be part of such a wonderful group of students.
More details of the trip will follow, but know that this has been a great trip on many levels, and enjoy some of the stories.
