Leaving on a midnight train to Tianjin (Part 1).

Every year all of the ISC schools gather in Tianjin for a choral festival.  They go down two days before the festival and practice for two days. Each school does individual performances and then they all sing together.  Paul and I went down to go to the festival and see Tianjin.
First some pictures of the festival.

Waiting to perform.

Introductions in English, Chinese and Korean.

Wuhan had four girls who sang beautifully.

Shenyang also sang beautifully.

The Wuxi school. This is their whole high school.

Tianjin is the biggest school as you can tell by the size of the choir.

All the schools together.  

They sang Cantate Domino, The Lord is My Shepherd, Weep No More, Vive L'Amour, Niska Banja and Hark I hear the Harps Eternal.

A lovely night for all- we really enjoyed it.
Tomorrow- sleeping on the train and why you shouldn't listen to your cabinmate.

Do the seats have covers on them for where people put their heads? That is cool :)
