my trip to england!
HI! Right now I’m in England! I’m from the U.S though. Anyway you will see a lot of flower pictures! 😉 I hope you enjoy my little blogs and comments.
This is where I am staying! It’s a high school... I’m staying with a brilliant choir called V.O.V. I am a member of it! It’s so fun!!! The school is called Langley high school. It’s very old, but it’s gorgeous.
Behind the school, there are beautiful flowers! Like I said, I do love flowers!!! This flower smells super good.
This is the dorm I’m staying in with four other people. It’s just a bit cramped, just kidding, it’s super cramped!!!
Well, I think I did a good job on my first blog. Keep posted!!! Peace out! -A-F

We are at St Nicholas today where the hoir is singing a concert. At the moment they students are rehearsing so it was a good chance to get an exclusive chaperone group photo in front of the church. This morning we enjoyed the Bridewell Museum in Norwich featuring history on the local industry of wool, textiles, Coleman's mustard and iron works. Norwich itself features many narrow cobnled streets full of cafes and shops. Lovely! Yoday we enjoyed some traditional Cornish Pasties for luncheon.
After a lovely lunch at St. Stephen’s church in Norwich, Natalie, Skylah, and Sofia treated the staff to a song. The people have been so friendly and welcoming. The kids are sharing about Voices of the Valley and their travels from Columbus, GA. Enjoy!

In only a few hours the best group of girls and boys will be traveling to England to sing from the depths of their heart. This trip has been long awaited and they've worked hard to make it happen. Thank you to Dr. Folta and staff for dedicating yourselves to working with our children and teaching them the art of music. I look forward to spending the next 10 days with you all and I know we're going to have a great time.

Today is the first day of our England tour. I am so excited, I have been looking forward to this day since last September. All our hardwork, dedication, and generous donations paid off, we are going to england. I am looking forward to the plane ride to England today. I have not
been on a plane since I was very young. I am also excited to sing with my choir and the St. thomas Choir, it is all so exciting. Thank you Dr. Folta and staff for all your Dedication and planning, I can not wait to see England.
till tomorrow Autumn rose.
dream come true, thanks to you!
Ive been with the choir for 2 years. I love singing, foreign languages, and singing in foreign languages.
So excited to travel to England with such a great group of people. I can't wait to see the gorgeous Cathedrals and old English architecture, and singing in these antiquated buildings will be a dream come true. Thanks to everybody who helped make this happen. We couldn't have done it without you! Let's all go sing our hearts out (not louder than beautiful though) and have a great time!
Friends of Voices of the Valley,
In less than 2 weeks, we’ll be on our way across the pond to perform “An American Celebration of Music in Britain” along with the St. Thomas Choir. We welcome you to follow our journey from Columbus, Ga to Atlanta and then on to London and Norwich, England.
