We did it! We had our first hybrid rehearsal and it was great! There were about 15-17 of us who gathered at a chorus member's home to sing live for the first time since March of 2019! It felt so good hearing live music and we cannot wait to do it again! In addition to those of us singing live, we had about a dozen chorus members who joined us via Zoom. Here's hoping that they will be able to come and sing live with us next time.

What a special treat to have had Kathleen Hansen join us at rehearsal! Kathleen is the Artistic Director of the San Diego Women's Chorus and the Master Director of the San Diego Chorus of Sweet Adelines. She is very talented and we are very grateful to have had her share some of her knowlege with us. We learned a lot about our personal voice and how to use our voice to become more singer driven. Looking forward to having Kathleen back again in 2021!
Our rehearsals continue with installation of our new management team, awards to various members, learning more new music and on June 16th, we had a number of friends/singers from other choruses in the region join us for rehearsal! It was so much fun seeing faces that we've not seen since last fall's regional meeting! We worked on learning one of the new regional songs, The Voice of Harmony AND we invited those folks to join us again on June 30 to learn and sing and laugh and have a great time Zooming rehearsal together! "See" you all at the Virtual Summer Education sessions!!
In the midst of all the craziness in the world these days, Houston Horizon celebrates the 50 year membership of our very own, Pat Fenton. We are so very proud and cannot wait to party with her over this moment when life gets back to more normal. Congratulations, Pat and we wish you another 50 years....smile!
She came, she coached, she worked us hard, she made us sing better, and she is Peggy Gram! She coached Houston Horizon the weekend before Valentine's Day and she did an amazing job! She was nice but blunt about what the chorus needs to be doing heading into Regional Contest. We are hard at work incorporating those things into our performance for all of our Region 10 friends and fellow competitors. Thanks, Peggy, and we'll see you again!
We had Visitors! We had several ladies join us on the risers on Tues, Jan 21 at our Open House and it was great fun! We are looking forward to seeing them back again next week as we continue our journey to Regional Contest. If you have found our website and want to check us out, we meet every Tuesday in the Education bldg of Unity Church, at the corner of Hillcroft and Unity Drive. We'll be waiting for you!!
