We’ve arrived!Tom Lloyd | March 5, 2010
24 hours after leaving Haverford and Bryn Mawr we’ve arrived at our first hotel in Ankara, Turkey, the beautiful capitol city of Turkey built by Ataturk. We have an hour before we start rehearsing with the Middle East Technical University Choir for our concert tonight – we just found out that Muammer Sun, one of Turkey’s most eminent composers, now in his 80′s, will be present to hear us perform four of his choral arrangements!
I’m confident the students will rise to the occasion – they’ll probably have much more energy tonight than they will tomorrow, so a concert will get us off to a great start! Historical tour and discussions with the students here tomorrow.
