Cheerio from London! We are getting the hang of it now and having a grand time. Brilliant actually! Hopefully you read that bit with a sharp British accent. Today the Chamber visited the Tower of London and then performed at the Southwark Cathedral. The cathedral performance was stunning and moved all who were present. Then it was off to Wembley stadium to celebrate at the women’s soccer semi finals! We really had a go of it!

Today the Chamber began the day with a “fly” over London on the London Eye. It was raining lightly but they had a great view of the women’s marathon. Then it was off to perform two sets at the BT London Live Potter’s Field Park. The Park is snuggled on the (Thames) river bank next to the famous “Onion” building and lying below the majestic London Bridge with the Olympic rings hanging from it. It was a perfect day with blue skies, piles of puffy clouds, a cool breeze and the good mood of the thousands of Brits gathered to watch the days events on the jumbotron in the park.
The Chamber sang twice in the afternoon and had raving fans. They even drew quite a crowd as they rehearsed on the steps of a local court building with people passing by wanting to know when and how to hear more. It was a perfect day that began with the Chamber soaring over London and ended with another peak performance.
