We’re also polishing up our awesome arrangement of The Star Spangled Banner for baseball season! And we also held auditions and welcomed a new Venusian into our orbit–more on our new mezzo soprano in another blog post.

VenusdMinorPerforms

Our favoriate Venusians Robin (front and center) and Dolores (fuschia, third from right) recently celebrated birthdays. This photo is not recent, as you can tell from the holiday greenery, but who wants a current photo for their birthday? To celebrate, Venus sang for R&D’s awesome house party. We love house parties.  Are you having one this spring or summer? Give us a shout…we’ll be there before you can say “canapé.” You can email us at venusdminor (at) gmail (dot) com. Or if this is an aca-emergency, call 301-651-3707.
