Today, HGC left homestays bright and early (as has been a regular occurrence) to congregate at FWAFA before boarding a bus to Highland Park Presbyterian Church. Upon arriving in the sanctuary, Gleeks met their RCS friends to begin rehearsal on the joint pieces to be preformed at Sunday services and a concert tomorrow (more details in the description from the menu above). After several hours of work running through a variety of pieces (with most emphasis on the Poulenc Gloria), singers emerged for much needed break and a quick taco lunch. From there, the combined choruses returned to the sanctuary for a final run through of future songs
After checking in at the hotel, Gleeks had the rest of the afternoon to explore downtown Dallas with a large group heading first to the Dallas Museum of Art. From there, we wandered toward the John F. Kennedy memorial before returning to the hotel. Others went to a local movie theater to see On the Basis of Sex (featuring the Harvard Glee Club singing Ten Thousand Men). That evening, singers turned in early to rest up before the long day to come.
