Dear Friends of the Washington Sängerbund,

      The Christmas season is upon us. On December 3 we sang German Christmas carols at the Willard International Hotel, and on December 17 we gave our traditional German Weihnachtskonzert at the United Church in Georgetown. 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 rehearsal retreat in Manassas this fall, and another successful fall concert in November. Our plans for next year include some cooperative events with the Delaware Sängerbund and our singer friends in California to which we are looking forward with great pleasure.
      While I know that I write to you often about our activities, I do it to remind you that without you, none of these activities would be possible. As always, I thank you for your continued support. I always enjoy hearing from you and encourage you to let us know if there are things you would like to see the Washington Sängerbund do in the future - your opinions matter to us.
      As you know the activities we share cost money. We need to pay for our con-ductor, 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.
      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.
