We performed the final concert of the tour in Leipzig tonight. It was such a privilege to perform in the Thomaskirche. As you can see, we performed from the balcony in the back of the church which was much larger than I thought it would be. Everyone is clamoring for video from the concert, so without further ado, here it is!
