DR. ABC Intro to Drake Chamber Choir Tour Blog, See posts below in "Archives."

Drake Chamber Choir will tour England January 10-22.  We'll post daily blogs about our activities, as well as related photos, so you can share in our transformational experiences.  Because January 10 is a travel day and we won't arrive at our first destination until the evening of January 11, please be patient regarding our initial post.  Thereafter, posts will be made late evening, or more likely, early the  next morning for the previous day, depending on schedule and internet availability.  England is six hours ahead of U.S. time.
