Dear Friends of the Washington Sängerbund,

    Once again, the holiday season is upon us and it’s come way too fast for me this year. In a departure from our usual solicitation mailing, I am sending this year’s request by email. Hope you understand.
    After our Fall Concert we immediately started work on our Christmas music. This year on December 8 we will sing at the Willard International Hotel. On December 15 we will sing at the United Church. As always this is one of the busiest seasons for all of us, yet it remains one of the most joyous as well. We had a wonderful retreat at Blackwater Falls and fun-filled concert this fall with our new conductor, Robert Morehead. Our plans for next year include our Spring Concert at what we hope will be a new venue and our annual Fasching at the Elks Lodge.
    All of these activities that we share with you cost us money. We need to pay for our conductor, our accompanist, our soloists, and the venues for our performances, to name just a few of our costs, and many of those costs continue to increase. Help us to preserve German culture in language and music. Give what you can, but please, give. I ask you to consider your continuing support to the Washington Sängerbund with a tax deductible gift.
    As always, I thank you for your continued support. I always enjoy hearing from you and encourage you to let me know if there are things you would like to see the Washington Sängerbund do in the future. Remember: It’s your club and your opinions matter to me.
    Please see below how to donate by credit card or PayPal. There is also a form with detailed information if you like to send a check. Your contribution means so much in helping us to continue to preserve German music and culture for which our organization was established in 1851.
