For most of the show choir members, the trip to France isn't just their first travel outside of the country.

"For some it's their first trip away from Florida," Herron said.

When the Soundsations show choir and Madrigals chorus arrive in Noirmoutier, they're treated like visiting celebrities, said Diamond and Kania.

More important, however, are the educational and cultural experiences Herron's trips provided, they said.

"It was very interesting going over with him," Diamond said. "Doc would often stop someplace and tell us about it. It was like having a tour guide with us all time."

Living with host families

As one of three experienced student members of the touring choirs, Kania has been a valuable resource for the novices.
