Today has been glorious. A non-singing day in the beautiful city of Melbourne! By contrast yesterday was pretty hectic, with a 5.45am alarm, flight from Sydney to Melbourne, and straight to the venue from the airport for a matinee concert (although it was in a lovely concert hall in Monash University)!
Today we had no official engagements until 6pm, so we each did our own thing for most of the day. For me, I had a lie in (total of 11hours 15mins of sleep, catching up on a couple of short nights previously!), then headed out for a stroll in the sun, and treated myself to a hideously expensive but delicious lunch in a restaurant called Cumulus Inc. — if you get chance to go, make sure to have their lamb!
After a little taste of that famously good Melbourne coffee I headed back to do some rather boring admin, rifling through 3 months worth of receipts. Then we headed off to give a masterclass to several wonderful groups from the area. I had the privilege of working with Burgundy, a small a cappella group made up of friends from the thriving choral scene here in Melbourne. Check them out if you get chance!
Now I’m back in my room, and have just got off the phone to Ellie (who is shortly to take her lunch break; this time difference is just so bizarre). Bedtime for me now, before another fairly relaxed day tomorrow — although we’ll be seeing our old British friend Chris Watson in the afternoon to work with his Choir here at Trinity College.
