Transcript HEARTSONG COMEBACK: A Letter from the Director This time last year, HeartSong was in full tilt hosting the 6th National Women's Choral Festival including a public concert in the Music Hall. For almost two years prior, we worked and worked to make it the best Festival the Sister Singers Network had ever seen. With all of your help, and I mean ALL of you, we succeeded. The feedback was off the charts, both from you and from the participants. Participants were struck by the friendliness and warmth they were shown by our community. From airport arrivals to closing ceremonies, these women were graciously taken care of each step of the way. On a scale of 1 to 10, we were given 12's and 13's. Pat yourselves on the back. Together, we did it! Today, a year later, you may well ask, where is HeartSong now? Many warned us of the toll producing the festival would take. None of us had any way of knowing what they meant. All of us were exhausted. Many of our members left the choir. Some to do other things, some to rest a while, and some just needed to leave. People have always come and gone from HeartSong but never so many at once. The loss of so many "family" members made our recovery even harder. We didn't sound like us or feel like us. We went through the motions for months, all of us pondering the question, "What's next?" "How do you follow that?" I am happy to tell you that our healing is coming along and even we are beginning to feel it. New members came in at the first of the year and shared their strength. We thought we might try to have a concert in the Fall but we just didn't have the energy. We began to do what we started out doing, sing for the simple joy of it. We are trying new songs, new styles, new fun. We even have new shirts. We are relearning our power, and finding our new direction. This summer HeartSong celebrated its 6th birthday. We have come a long way from our first public appearance with nine women. When I look back at all that we have done in our six years, I am amazed and proud to be standing where I am. I guess we deserved a rest. So don't give up on us. We will be back. On December 12th to be exact. The Gay Men's Chorus of Houston, formerly the Montrose Singers, has invited us to share their holiday concert with them at Hamman Hall. We were proud to accept. Each will be doing their own set and then we will join together for a set. Lots of good music will be made so please come and enjoy with us. In closing, I want to personally thank you for your undying support. I know the chorus, is as grateful as I am to be so graciously loved and appreciated by you. Thank you for your years of listening and encouragement. Sisters, you keep us singing. VVasliington DC In deep appreciation, -Lynne Weynand APRIL Z5,1993 The Houston Tennis Club is having it's annual national tennis tournament, Houtex XII, November 7th through the 9th.
