Hey all, here's a PSA I think you'll enjoy, should you be able to attend.  The Heartland Men's Chorus is having their spring concert on March 28 & 29 at the Folly Theatre in KC.  HMC is a primarily gay men's chorus, and they are absolutely incredible.  Have a listen here: http://www.hmckc.org/promo/Justice.aspx

Their director is also now the director of the KC Women's Chorus that I'm a part of, and we in the women's chorus are doing all we can to support them, just as they support us.  The focus of their concert is on civil rights, encompassing everything from the women's right to vote, to the anniversary of MLK Jr's I Have a Dream speech to the anniversary of the Stonewall Inn riots (homosexual equality.)

It's sure to be an emotionally moving event, so if you're able to attend, please order tickets and go!  :)

OH, I somehow didn't know that you were in the Chorus. Do me (and yourself!) a favor and look up Judy Siegfried in the alto section, if you don't already know her.

She's my bestest friend in the whole world, dating back to high school. She was in my first wedding and all. Don't get to see her much anymore but we're in pretty close contact via email. One of the niftiest people around anywhere. Erm, I think she still sings in the chorus. I'll email her and ask her to find you too.

*grin* That's how we first met; I was the new kid in choir at school and she said, "Hi, you're new here, huh?" And that was the beginning of lots of wonderful years of friendship.

Yes! I do know Judy! Shared dinner with her and a few others the other week, as a matter of fact. She's a trip! Love-love her! Small world!

*hee* Oh that's awesome! Somehow that doesn't surprise me one little bit that you get along so well. Yeah, Judy is a trip, indeed. Have her tell you about the "wrong way streets" and the "bathroom in the airport" and "falling off the bannister"...we have had lots of fun!

PLEASE give her a huge hug for me and have her give you one too.

I will! We have an 8-hr marathon rehearsal session tomorrow, so I'll ask & hug her then, heh.
