Last week I went to London for a couple of days to see one of my favorite groups, Pentatonix, perform live. I’ve loved them since they started on The Sing-Off 2 years ago and I was very excited when they announced their European tour in August.
The concert was amazing. The atmosphere in the crowd was amazing because everyone was so excited to have them in London for the first time. The group was incredible. To feel Avi’s bass reverberate through my body, hear Mitch’s beautiful voice and sing along when Kevin and Avi conducted the crowd in an 800-people choir made it all just an unforgettable evening.
The next evening I went to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, a play by the National Theatre based on a book by Mark Haddon. I had read and loved the book in high school, and even wrote a paper based on the book about kids with autism. The play was amazing as well, even from the not very good seat I had. All the actors were on top form (I can’t imagine all the time and research the lead put into portraying a 15-year-old boy with autism), and I loved the use of technology in the set design. The stage would light up in different ways in different scenes, things would appear and disappear. All in all, well worth a watch.
Apart from those 2 things (that I had tickets for) I walked around a lot. I’ve always loved London and the weather was too gorgeous (clear blue skies) to sit inside much.
