Before describing the rest of the day, I'd like to demonstrate the extreme strangeness of violinist Livia Sohn. We were downstairs from the rehearsal hall, taking a bathroom break, and she started dancing around:

These concerts are going to be AMAZING! Both the Orquesta La Pasión and the Schola Cantorum de Caracas are fantastic, and the difference between them and the stuffy classical musicians (us) is really marked. I'm not saying that one is better than the othe: it's just interesting to watch. :) I am taking video footage on this trip, and the first footage I have of them is a clip of them dancing around to a South American drum beat. :)
