September 25, 2018, Houston Horizon celebrated it's 37th year history with a Reunion. And, what a fun reunion it was. Friends from all over the place came to visit and renew friendships while new friendships were formed! We all got on the risers and sang songs and tags together, watched a slide show of our past directors with commentary, and viewed photos of the chorus from each contest that we have competed in. We also figured out that, as far as we know, we are the only chorus in Sweet Adelines that has produced 3 presidents for the organization! Not bad, right? We would love to see more of our friends and find out what you have been doing since you sang with us. Come and visit any Tuesday evening, we would LOVE to see you!!!!!
Tuesday, 9/11, saw us singing the National Anthem and God Bless America at the Sugar Land Skeeters baseball game. The team was honoring first responders and invited us to come and sing for them. And although the Skeeters didn't win that night, we had a great time cheering on the team and entertaining the crowd!
This past Tuesday night, HHC got to do something that has become our favorite activity at rehearsal...welcome a new member!! Welcome to our newest member, Demi Edwards! We are so glad that you are a part of us now! Looking forward to seeing you join us in all of our activities moving forward. WELCOME!
Sat, June 30th, saw the chorus take a "Sentimental Journey" back to the 1940s for our annual show! Songs like Sentimental Journey, I'll Be Seeing You, As Time Goes By entertained our audience as well as the honoring our Armed Forces audience members with the Armed Forces Medley. Thanks to all who sang as well as all who attended! See you at Christmas!!!
Great Gulf Coast Region 10 held their Summer Regional meeting this past weekend and Houston Horizon was well represented in both the Red and the Blue chorus. To see how much fun they had, ask the people in the photos. Our faculty was the incomparable Ryan Heller! Everyone who attended had a great time...here's to the next Regional meeting in the fall!!
Tuesday night saw Kellie Welsh install our new Management Team for 2018-2019. Congratulations to our new team, Carin Williamson, Sue Phillips, Kristi Rodrigue, Carol Karna, Anna Mae Garner, Janet Burnett, Suzanne Pointer, and Kathy Railey for taking on the job of leading HHC as we prepare for international competition in 2019. In addition, there were several awards given out. The Jean Brennen award was given to Anna Mae Garner, while the Director's Award went to Bette Speer. And finally, our Sweet Adeline of the Year award was given to 2 very deserving ladies: Liz Callahan and..... Stay tuned for that 2nd person who will receive her award at next week's rehearsal. Congratulations to everyone!!
Well, the last 2 weeks at HHC have been busy! April 24th saw us hold our very first Karaoke contest and it was a great hit! We had 9 singers perform with lots of "fans" for each of them. Congratulations to our winner, Munachi. She sang Adele's hit, Hello and we said Hello right back! After singing for us, we then performed for our Karaoke singers and a good evening was had by all. The following Tuesday was Guest Night with 3 ladies coming to visit and sing with us. They joined us on the risers to sing both God Bless America and It's My Party. We're looking forward to having them join us on the risers as new members very soon!
