Over The Moon Fall Concert Sister Cities of Houston

On Friday, November 22, 2019, Sister Cities of Houston, a 501(c)3, non-profit organization, held their annual concert. As this year marks the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon, the theme for the concert this year was “Over the Moon”.

Harry Gee, the President of Sister Cities Houston, and his team of volunteers welcomed the attendees to the art exhibition and concert. Mayor Sylvester Turner recognized the student artists who had entered the Youth Talent Showcase. The Theme for the young artists and authors showcase for next year is “One World: Out of Many, We Are One.” 

Teachers throughout the Houston Metropolitan Area are invited to get their students involved. The top three winners were Michelle Wang, Lillian Zhao, and Jennifer Guo.

The very charismatic Pooja Lodhia, of KTRK-ABC, was the emcee for the concert featuring:

Elliot Stone accompanied by Doug Marcis featuring the Didgeridue, an instrument in use by the aborigines of Australia. They performed Yolngu Songs as taught by Djalu Gurruwiwi. 

Kim Kuja Korean Dance- Fan Dance and Drums

Treble Choir of Houston

Anjali Center for Performing Arts- Classical Indian Dance 

Mariachi Luna Llena from Rice University

It was a moving experience for all those present. A reception was held for everyone immediately following the concert at the MATCH Gallery.

Special thanks was given to all the sponsors Susan Young and David Godwin, the organizers for the fall concert- Gulara Alakbarrova, Jeff Gillis, Ellen Goldberg, Myra Johnson, Dean Liscom, Anita Long, Kham Vargas; volunteers Thomas Canny and Alice Lee; Stage Manager Debs Ramsert; our performers who represent the rich cultural heritage of some of the many international communities that enrich our society; the students and teachers of the schools participating in the Youth Talent Showcase, and the Mayor’s Office of Trade and International Affairs.
