We're making our way across China with the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio & Music Director Troy Peters. Thursday we went from Shanghai to Hangzhou with a brief stop at the "Venice of China," Wuzhen. Here is Executive Director Steven Payne with Adam Paarmann before our tour in Wuzhen (everybody has been wondering where Adam is on facebook!)
We then had a nice visit from the students at Hangzhou Shangmao Vacation School (HSVS) who played several wind band selections. They made special preparations for YOSA's visit during their final testing period. Thank you so much!
Next was a rehearsal and concert, which all of the students from the HSVS came to...and loved it! Here is bassist Alejandro Juul getting mobbed for pictures and autographs!
Friday is another travel day, on to Shenzhen..
