Shelly and Roy In Mexico City with the Houston Symphony Chorus

In August, the Houston Symphony Chorus went to Mexico City to sing with the Orquestra Sinfonica de Mineria, as they traditionally do. As is also traditional in years when not all expenses are paid, they needed some extra voices to fill out their ranks, so director Charles Hausmann invited Roy along.

The audience is wonderfully appreciative, and it had been years since he'd been, so Roy accepted, and Shelly agreed to go along.
