It's back to work for The Wesley Bell Ringers today as the group traveled from the big city of Chicago to Osceola Indiana. As the bus distance from Illinois to tonight's concert was a short two hours, there was time for an adventure first thing at The Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago. For some who have came back to support the choir, this was a repeat visit, but for the greater majority this was the first time to visit this extraordinary museum. It is always interesting traveling with a larger group as it can be taxing to get everyone to, from, and inside venues such as today, but The Museum of Science & Industry is very well practiced in managing tour groups of all sizes & made this one of our easiest events yet.
After lunch & museum fun, the choir was able to grab a quick nap before unpacking the bus & setting up in Osceola. As the Osceola United Methodist Church houses an daycare, The Wesley Bell Ringers had some extra special encouragement today as they practiced.
