World Choir Games 2012

I don’t know why it’s taken me so very long to write this post.  The World Choir Games have, sadly, come and gone.  Somehow I just haven’t been able to sit down and process it all. I think I’m having withdrawal!

Serious withdrawal.  But this post has to be made. You see, my World Choir Games addiction resulted in 2000+ pictures and HOURS of video taken.

The lack of posts was definitely not due to lack of content!  I think it’s been due to a feeling of disbelief.  I can’t believe it’s over.  I can’t believe all these fun people have returned home to Shanghai and Bangkok and Venezuela.

I can’t believe how AMAZING our city looked and how happy the visitors were to be here.  I enjoyed every single minute of those glorious days!

I enjoyed days upon days of just walking around downtown, following groups just to see where they’d end up in hopes of stumbling on an impromptu performance.

I enjoyed days of free Friendship Concerts and especially loved sitting at Fountain Square where we all got to see the world on our doorstep.

I enjoyed getting to see many competitions.  I enjoyed being “wowed” over and over by the gift of song.

I’m literally tearing up as I write this, still sad that it’s over.  I am sincerely thankful for all of the people involved in making this happen for all of us.

And I selfishly hope that we all get to see an event similar to this in Cincinnati again.  It was truly one of the most amazing few weeks of my life.
