Hungary - Day 1 - The Basilica, Budapest

20 Jul 2016

After a well needed night's rest and a hearty breakfast, for those who made it, we boarded the coaches ready for Budapest.  Students looked very smart in their uniforms, especially after skirts had been rolled down! In true Davenant style the coaches were alive with singing as students warmed up for their first performance.  Two hours in Budapest pre-concert were spent eating gellato in the shape of flowers and some students sniffed out that typical Hungarian cuisine - Subway!  Photo opportunities were plentiful outside Budapest's magnificent Basilica in the glorious sunshine and spirits were high as we entered for the first concert.
From the opening performance of the orchestra all the way through to the school choir, it was simply magical.  Students performed to a full audience of locals, tourists and parents. The beauty of the architecture along with the classical repetoire were spiritually uplifting.  After the concert we congregated in the square outside the Basilica, to be greeted by a group of young Hungarians who foolishly challenged our students to a sing off!  The icing on the cake was the whole party being invited to photo bomb a bride and bridegroom's wedding photos, while serenading them.
