August 22


The second day of choir camp was yet another success! To fuel ourselves for the long day, we filled up on breakfast burritos, bacon, and fresh fruit. Following breakfast, we had a short morning service in the scenic St. Luke’s chapel (it overlooks beautiful Long Island Sound).  Although this day was very strenuous because it was mainly focused around ribbon training and rehearsal, we still had tons of fun. We worked on many new pieces for Friday’s evensong and the upcoming England trip (who’s excited?!).

After a short break, we launched into the ribbon training, and then had a lunch of Meatball subs, potato wedges and broccoli, and after lunch, we got the results of our cabin inspections. In first place (the fewest infractions) was the younger girls’ cabin, then the teen boys got second (that was probably one of the most shocking parts of our day), then the teen girls, and in last place, the younger boys. After lunch, of course we had to resume to our ribbon training.

An hour later, we reconvened for more rehearsals in De Wolfe hall. We were all a bit tired, so Mr. Brayne taught us some new warmup songs to revive us. A rest was much needed, so we all headed to our cabins to relax and practice skits – skit night is coming up soon! Before dinner, we split up boys and girls for quick rehearsals where we worked on music for later on this year.

This evening, Chef Alex prepared a great meal of pork, potatoes, and peas, and a delicious birthday cake to celebrate George’s ninth birthday! We winded down with compline and then continued our celebration with s’mores by the bonfire – a great way to end our fantastic first full day of singing!
