What a way to start the new year. We're still hearing from people who heard us on Prairie Home Companion, and, like us, can't get Garrison Keillor's send-up of Les Mis out of our ears.The first road tour of this year started tonight in Houston at the Corinthian, Jackson Hicks' fantastic event space where we last were a few years ago. Our hosts were the Doctors Susan and Dennis Carlyle, with much appreciated support from Jackson and other Houston friends. Susan has been on our Board for over 10 years. We don't see her often enough, but when we do, we're glad. She assembled a few hundred music loving friends, about 40 students from Kingwood and HSPVA, champagne and hors d'oeuvres. We sang most of "The Siren's Call", and a good time seemed to be had be all.
