Daily Student Perspective: Trevor Peters
Today, we began our second full day here in San Francisco with breakfast and a late call time. We all boarded the bus and headed downtown to ride the famous San Francisco cable cars. We were dropped off in downtown Union Square where we ate lunch and were able to see all of the city's St. Patrick's day festivities. After a brief warmup in Union Square, we headed off to the beautiful Grace Cathedral for a quick afternoon concert and tour. Our busy day continued as we headed into the Castro district of San Francisco for an evening of free time. Some used this time to eat dinner, shop, and a few of us even went sight seeing to the Full House house! Our day concluded with a collaboration with the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, where both groups were able to perform for the other. We finally headed back to the hotel and some of us took advantage of the hotel hot tub! Today was full of many sights, new ideas, new friends, and of course beautiful music!
