Summit Choral Society | Performance Choir | Choral Festival | Memorial Day Weekend | Washington D.C. | Day 4

Sunday, May 28, 2017

We started our morning off as usual, breakfast at The Hyatt & then boarding the bus with our fantastic driver, Willie & our enthusiastic tour guide, Scott.
But when we boarded the bus…we realized 3 of our girls missed the wake up call…
Ooopsie! Uber it is!
We all met up at the WWII Memorial for the wreath laying at our state marker.
Spencer Jones was chosen to lay the wreath.
We boarded the bus, this time with everyone on it, and headed to St. Andrews Episcopal Church where the kids would not only be singing during mass, but they would be performing a mini concert after for all of the parishioners.
When mass was over, it was time to head to Six Flags America for some fun!!…in the rain!
Yes, it happened to rain 95% of the time that we were there. But the kids didn’t seem to mind, that just meant they could go on all the water rides!
After a fun & wet day at the park, we headed to Uno’s Union Station to pick up our dinners & headed back to the hotel.
Tonight was also the National Memorial Day Concert on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capital, which featured the National Symphony Orchestra.
About 12 of us braved the chance of more rain and attended the concert. And I am glad we did!
Because it was nothing short of amazing.
The stories, the voices, the emotions, the crowd…it was a site to be seen and heard.
& how about the purple sky to end our night?
