On Tuesday we reconvene once again in Salt Lake City. Four of us travel there from London after a few days at home. Julian and Johnny, who stayed in the US after our concerts in Minnesota, Indiana and Michigan, will meet us there, along with Patrick, who’s coming to join us to rehearse. As many of you will know, next weekend we will join the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, along with the Orchestra at Temple Square, for this year’s Pioneer Concerts in SLC’s Conference Center Auditorium. It will be wonderful to be back there once again, as it’s one of the most memorable venues in which I’ve performed over the last 26 years. It’s also one of the largest, seating a mere 21,000 people.
For now, I’m at home trying to prepare for multiple trips. After Salt Lake City, we head straight to Germany for four concerts. I’m then home for a few hours before heading off to my last UK concert at Snape Maltings via France (don’t ask!), followed by three French concerts. After Menton I’m staying on in the South of France to have a holiday, so am driving my car to France for my last trip. The logistics of this are a little complicated (see above), so I have piles of work and holiday clothes lying around my house. This way I won’t have a mad panic when I make my brief stops back home over the next three weeks. One thing I can guarantee (at least I hope I can), it’s likely to be pretty hot in Utah and France. Having said that, it’s pretty warm here today.
