We left on Thursday from Saint Mike's, and played at two Catholic schools, Catholic Central and Christian Brothers Academy, on Friday. It was the last day of Catholic schools week, and many students came up to us after mass to say how much they enjoyed the music. Alex and I helped Mike Stefanowicz, an Admission Counselor and alum of Catholic Central, at the Admissions table at the high schools and it was great to meet some students interested in Saint Mike's, and congratulate some seniors who had actually been accepted already! On Saturday, we had a more relaxing day and only played at one 4 PM mass at Mater Christi parish. My mom, aunt, and grandmother drove from my hometown in Upstate NY to come to this mass, and the 9 AM mass we played at Christ the Light Church! We also played at the 11 AM mass at Christ the Light, and then headed back to Saint Mike's after a great lunch at the church.
We had a busy weekend, but it was so much fun! In between playing at masses, we went to the Crossgates mall in Albany, ate at some really great restaurants, and got to hang out as a group. All the people in the Lit Choir are really nice, and I always enjoy getting to spend time with them. I was most excited that my friend Adrianna (aka Audrey as I called her this weekend, or Adrian if you're Father Brian) was able to come on the trip! She graduated from Saint Mike's last year, and also plays the violin. It was so great to see her!

Father Brian and Mike were taking great pictures all week, so I compiled them into a slide show. The music is Walk in the Reign performed by the Liturgical Choir when we went to Maine. It is one of my favorite songs, and I hope you enjoy it! Check out the awesome blog Alex wrote about our trip after you watch it!
