I recently spent three weeks touring with The Australian Girls Choir. I was one of only 56 girls selected Australia wide. We travelled to London, Mansfield, Villers Bretonneux, Paris, Venice, Marostica and Rome. During this time we performed 16 concerts ranging from small concerts for local community to much larger ones. We performed at schools, churches and an Australian Embassy. We did workshops with other choirs and schools, and of course fit in some sightseeing and shopping. I was also lucky enough to get my first solo with the choir which was really confidence building. I stayed with five different host families which was an amazing experience. Some hardly spoke any English so Google translate came in handy. The highlight was performing for the Pope at The Vatican in front of over 50,000 people. I am very grateful for this experience.
