Day 1: Arrival at the Big Apple

And we’re off! After an (extremely) early morning, the Viter ensemble headed from YEG to YYZ where we completed a quick connection to arrive on time in New York. Once we had a few hours to sleep, shower, and explore the rooftop patio of our hotel (Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott), we were off to our welcome dinner at Houndstooth Pub in Midtown Manhattan. Our choir member Melody Kostiuk received a special birthday celebration from the Viter Ensemble. There were gifts, cake and of course, beautiful singing of Mnohaya Lita! 

The evening was left to explore Times Square, experience a Broadway show or grab a slice of pizza and do some shopping on 5th avenue!
