Late April 2010
Rachel writes – ‘Well I’m amused to read the sentence I wrote earlier this month saying the US trip would be ‘all within a week’. Because on the VERY day we sang at Carnegie Hall, the dear volcano did its stuff in Iceland, and the fun and games began!
All in all the extra time in New York amounted to a week. We did spend an entire day at JFK airport and a lot of time trying to get through to the airline on the phone. But then I guess there are much worse places to be ‘stranded’ than the isle of Manhattan! A trip to the Met, a Sondheim show, an Ephron play, a gig by Jeff Daniels and a concert at the Cosmopolitan Club later, I am home.’

Rachel writes – ‘Off to the USA to sing with Synergy Vocals at Disney Hall in Los Angeles and Carnegie Hall in New York. Super-quick trip, all within a week, but I’m looking forward to seeing Central Park in its spring finery…’
