Dear Friends of the Washington Sängerbund,

      Once again, the holiday season is upon us. After our Fall Concert we immediately start work on our Christmas music. This year on December 2 we will sing at the Willard International Hotel. On December 16 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 Capon Springs this fall and another successful fall concert. Our plans for next year include our Spring concert at the United Church. A different venue for this, but one that is very familiar and as you know has some great acoustics. We look forward to seeing you there.
      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.
      This is will be a challenging year for the WSB. As one of our usual Oktoberfest venues was no longer available to us we had to make do with an extended Oktoberfest cooking session in Lovettsville. While we did very well, the proceeds will not make up for the loss of our second venue. Therefore, the support you provide to us via your generous gifts is more important to us this year than ever.
      As always, I thank you for your continued support. I always enjoy hearing from you and encourage you to let me know it 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.
      We have a donation form (pdf file) available to download for your convenience. You can send a check, or scroll to the bottom of this page and donate by credit card or PayPal. Your contribution means so much in helping us do the job for which our organization was established in 1851.
