Minimalist blogging

Thanks to Eleanor for our penulimate blog! On Thursday night Stile arrived in Texas for the first time (not counting our brief stop in Houston airport en route to Mexico in 2010). We were looking forward to a double dose of warmth: both the Texan sunshine, and the renowned Southern hospitality. Luckily we received both:…

Full of beans

Thanks to Kate for being our blogger in Brattleboro.  Having breakfasted heartily we loaded into two large people-carriers for the short journey to Brattleboro, Vermont. Fitting six people and six large suitcases into the cars was, as usual, something of an initiative test, but eventually we managed to fit everything in. The day was cold…

Back to School/Tranquility in Concord

A big thank you to Will for today’s blog! After all the excitement of the lasers and excessive Bass (rarely a problem for me) in the bus from the airport, Wednesday morning in the State Capital of New Hampshire greeted us in familiar, English fashion: cold and wet weather right off the top shelf of…

O gentle (lack of) sleep

Thank you to lovely soprano Becky for writing this instalment of our blog! 5.20am. Alarm goes off. Stumble out of bed. Find some clothes. Put them on. So began our Berkeley concert day. After the short flight to San Francisco (or Frisco as I gather it is known), we were transferred almost directly into rehearsal….

We’re now safely home in the UK and thawing out after an eventful week in the States. Here’s Andrew, with the final instalment of this tour’s travel blog. “As Will explained in his blog about our sadly-curtailed stay in Washington DC, we decided along with the Folger Consort to leave town ahead of the arrival of…

Snow on snow on snow…

It’s been an eventful few days. Our intrepid logistics-man, Will Dawes, 36, tells all… “After a few excellent days in and around Westerly, the group jumped back into our MPVs on Tuesday and headed back onto the I-95 for a mere 8hr journey to DC, We enjoyed the stunning skyline of Manhattan on the way,…

Warm welcome in Westerly

We had a great time visiting Westerly, RI, the first stop on our current US tour. Here’s Eleanor: “After eight hours on a plane followed by three in a car, there’s nothing like a good dose of American hospitality to cheer us up and help us shrug off the jetlag. That’s exactly what we got…

Going Underground

Emma reports on Stile’s return to one of our favourite destinations: “I got more than a few raised eyebrows when I told people I was taking my five week old baby to Switzerland so I could work, but I explained this was really an unmissable trip – after all, it’s not every day you are…

Back Home

After two flights and a modicum of sleep, we’re safely back in the UK. Our final tour concert in Columbus was a great success, and it was a particular pleasure to see so many of the students with whom we had worked at Oberlin in the audience. Any sore heads the morning after were offset by an…

“We’ll be back…”

Tom is pumped for today’s blog… “Since long before the tour, I had envisaged that our day in Columbus, Ohio, would be my personal highlight for one very specific reason: the Arnold Sports Festival. Synonymous for bodybuilding fans the world over with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s passion for the pursuit of muscle since he inaugurated the festival in…
