Last night was our final performance alone as YPC. It’s unbelievable to think that this tour is coming to an end, but looking back, I think that we have done a great job of representing and sharing YPC and the USA in Sweden. All of our energy really came through in our concert last night, and on the stage I could truly feel the musicianship and artistry coming from each chorister. That connection really made it a memorable performance for me.
Participating in “Let the Future Sing” has allowed me to meet other children ages 11-18 from Estonia, Hungary, Armenia, Canada, China, and of course, Sweden. It is so interesting to spend time with the other choirs and learn about how other children in the world live. Despite the language barriers and cultural differences, we have all connected in so many ways with these children from all over the world.
I will never forget everything I have learned on this trip – about music, about what it takes to put on a truly incredible performance, about Sweden, about myself, and about the world. I am so proud of all we have done here!
