The team performed concerts both Monday and Tuesday evening. The basic format was the same with a few minor changes each evening.
Here are a few photos from Monday and Tuesday evening.
The Cultural Palace where the concerts were held
Speaking of gifts, one night a woman came up to Cheryl and put a kitten on her shoulder after the concert. Cheryl assumed that the woman was showing her the kitten but the woman told her "it is a gift" and walked away! Obviously Cheryl couldn't keep the kitten and take it back to the U.S. so....Karen and I are now parents to Mishka, which means "Little Bear", or "Teddy Bear" in the Russian language.
