  • Houston Grand Opera is Coming to U.S.VETS

    This autumn, Houston Grand Opera is hosting a series of workshops for military veterans of all ages, genders and branches of service at U.S.VETS – Houston. Join fellow veterans and HGO artists to share stories and reflections based on universal themes with your own personal experiences. HGO artists will create original songs inspired by the group discussion, and will perform these songs at the celebration after the workshop. Bring an open mind and your creativity, and expect to gain new perspectives, build friendships, and explore the transformative power of art. The workshops will be held every Thursday evening from October 9 through November 13 at 6:00 p.m. A final performance and celebration will be held on November 20. The HGO will also perform the original songs at the Wortham Theater in January. HGOco is Houston Grand Opera’s unique initiative that connects the opera company with the community through collaboration. Through HGOco, Houston Grand Opera creates opportunities for Houstonians of all ages and backgrounds to observe, participate in, and create art. Its flagship program Song of Houston is an ongoing program that creates and shares work based on stories that define the unique character of our city and its diverse population. For more information about participating in the workshops, please contact: Oskar Gonzalez-Yetzirah U.S.VETS – Houston Outreach Coordinator 832.203.1626 or ogonzalez@usvetsinc.org.

  • BINGO!

    This last weekend, volunteers from four local companies – WPI, Texas Iron Workers, Kelly Services and Martha Turner Properties – came together to bring an awesome bingo game to U.S.VETS – Houston! The volunteers brought prizes, snacks for our veterans on campus – including snow cones to help everyone beat the heat. It was so wonderful to hear all the BINGO calls, the hand claps and laughs throughout the dining hall. A very big thank you to all the volunteers who came out to bring our veterans such a fun activity, and a special salute to Annette Washburn of WPI for coordinating these efforts!
