Shanghai

Well hello there! What an interesting week we’ve had. I’ve tried some food that I never even knew existed as a Filipino delicacy: fertilised duck embryo…it’s not quite as delicious as it sounds (??) but at least I can say I’ve tried it!

China is fascinating. The growth of the country in the past decade alone, from what I’ve read, is astonishing. This is my second visit in 12 months and it’s great being back. The audiences are so generous with their applause and make us feel so at home. It’s not why I do this job but they do make you feel like a celebrity. The queues for autographs and demand for selfies seem to get longer and longer!

Today we spent the afternoon at Dulwich College working with their Chamber Choir on Down to the River to Pray. We then performed it together in the evening concert. I was really impressed with how quickly they absorbed information and put it into practice. It was about a year to the day since we last visited the school and, who knows, we may just have to do it all over again next year! Let’s hope so!

Well, one more show tomorrow in the Oriental Arts Centre. The inside is as amazing as the outside. Can’t wait!

Bye for now.
