Greetings from Minneapolis, Minnesota! After a very early start out of Madison Wisconsin, and a full day of travelling and singing, including participating in a dedication ceremony of the Black River Falls “Mormon Loggers” memorial (a very cool experience I will be blogging about separately), The Mormon Tabernacle Choir finally arrived in Minneapolis at approximately 5:00 PM local time.
Tonight was a designated “free night”. A welcome chance to relax and see the sites prior to our final 2013 Summer Tour performance on Thursday, June 20th in the Target Center. As it turned out, we arrived on game day! The Minnesota Twins were going head to head with the Chicago White Sox in nearby Target Field! Thanks to choir member Dave Palmer’s most excellent organizational prowess, about 200 members of our 500 travelling group grabbed the opportunity to go see the game.
