Columbia 2013 Regional: Top Five List for Day One

Ah, to be with friends at a regional convention . . . priceless! Missing all of you that cannot attend.

So, the top five list for Day One at the Columbia Regional:

5) Nice reception at the exhibit hall one the first floor of the Hilton. Smiles all around!
4) Got caught in the rain while walking to the hotel following the Quimby/RCYO competition at Trinity Cathedral. Hey, the rain is really keeping Columbia cool so far!!!
3) Stefan Engels playing Karg-Elert on the E.M. Skinner/Colby at Washington Street United Methodist. Lovely strings and yes, an antiphonal! Also, wonderful to hear the newly commissioned work by Trey Clegg (Toccata on "Go Tell It On The Mountain")
2) Watching the young faces of the Capella Pueri sing at the opening convocation at St. Peter's Catholic Church.
1) Listening to a great Quimby/RCYO competition this afternoon. Congrats go to all who performed. 1st Prize went to Carolyn Craig; 2nd Prize to Thomas Williford.
