God Bless America
It's
a
Grand Night For Singing
It's a grand night for singing the moon is flying high and somewhere a bird who is bound he'll be heard is throwing
his heart at the sky.
It's a grand night for singing the stars are bright above,
the earth is a glow and to add to the show I think lam
falling in love, falling, falling in love.
t4aybe its more than the moon,
maybe its more than the birds
maybe its more than the site of the night in a light too
lovely for words.
Maybe its more than the earth, shining in silvery blue,
maybe the reason I'm feeling this way has something to do
with you.

A SPECIAL THANKS
As The Dale Warland Singers anticipates its 20th anniversary season, I
have two immediate responses: disbelief and gratitude. Disbelief that
these years could have passed so quickly and gratitude to each and eve~
singer who has contributed so much in talent and time. I also express my
heartfelt thanks to the Board otDirectors who have been such an inspiration
through its dedication and commitment to the mission of the entire
organization ...and to you, a generous and SURPortivecommunity, who have
~
with your applause, gifts and enthusiasm for our music.
