Yesterday (Monday) was the first of five days of taping 10 new TQS shows on location in the Colorado Springs area. Remember, "on location" means out and about and not with audience members. It allows us to shake up the TQS drill and we've heard from enough of you to know that you like both.
Our first location was the United States Air Force Academy - and more specifically, the Cadet Chapel. The chapel is one of the most amazing architectural buildings in the world and certainly one of the most identifiable. We taped two shows INSIDE the chapel - who would have thunk it? Not only that, but I had the honor of getting up to the choir loft to play the magnificent organ (see photo) - with 4334 pipes! This dream was not on my bucket list because I would never have thought that would have been possible. It will forever be one of my most memorable moments.
The photo above shows quilts from our first guest. He uses architectural elements in his quilt designs so being in the chapel was a great fit. Our afternoon guest was an international quilter from the Netherlands who makes quilts that explode with color. Any guesses?
Justin, squinting in the bright morning sun, is wired for sound to open the show outside the US Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel.
