  The mission of the Golden Tones chorus is to practice and provide enriching
entertainment for senior citizen facilities, schools, faith communities and public
 events. Members are men and women of retirement age who sing and dance to
 lift spirits, have fun, and promote health and social engagement to benefit our
                              audiences and ourselves.

WOW! Can you believe it??!! The GOLDEN TONES are turning 25 SILVER YEARS!
For those amongst the more recent members, who perhaps are not familiar with our history, I share the
following brief summary: The chorus was born in 1988 to its creator, Maddie Sifantus, our
founder/director (now the Rev. Maddie Sifantus) who, with her mother Lina MacNeill as accompanist,
formed what would eventually be named the Wayland Golden Tones. Organized as a small sing-along
group of some 10 persons, who began meeting for an hour every other week from September to June to
sing old familiar favorite songs, the group continued to expand and, as years passed, evolved into the
Golden Tones chorus as we now know it.

It always gives me great pleasure to look back on our past, our present, and consider our future. The
Golden Tones has continued to flourish as an organization throughout these 25 years of life. It has
become a major and stable happening throughout MetroWest, and on occasion, beyond. A
recapitulation of activities this season includes:

S pecial concerts we have performed: Senator Spilka’s Health and Wellness Fair, a successful
performance as we have been asked to return next year. Singing for some 300 incoming Boston
University students interested in pursuing a career in community outreach was an uplifting experience.
“Senior Spectacular” concert at the DCU Center in Worcester sponsored by Fallon Health Care gave us
an interesting perspective.

I nternal accomplishments of your Board of Directors included: Completion of our revised By-Laws; a
Standing Rule for the Endowment Fund; a review of our previous Strategic Plan and the development
of a new 5-year strategic plan (2013-2018) that will carry the Golden Tones into the future.

L oss of members Abe Goodman, Ginny Megson (a member of the original group of Golden Tones),
Nancy Perry, and Barbara Philbrick saddened us all.

V ery versatile musical programming thanks to the members of the MAP Committee working in
conjunction with Debby.

E ntered into an arrangement with Wayside Hospice of Parmenter Health Care to visit and sing to
patients through the efforts of our Caring Committee volunteers.

R ITZ Funraiser once again achieved its monetary goal and provided a fun social event for all who

In conclusion, let me say that I am so very proud to be a part of this vital organization and I thank you
for the support and respect that you have paid me as your President. I ask that you recall and remain
focused on our double outreach mission: In this manner we help ourselves as we help others.

Respectfully submitted,

Helen F. Brody, President
Golden Tones 2012 Annual Report                                                        page 4 of 15


Dear Golden Tones Shareholders,
If you are reading this report, you have an interest in the welfare of an enterprise called Golden Tones
chorus. Consider yourself an “investor” of time, talent, treasure, and involvement, and read on!

During our Strategic Planning process , Helen Brody and I reviewed the organization’s previous (2007)
Strategic Plan, and highlighted ideas to review and perhaps carry forward into the new Strategic Plan.
We were heartened by the many prescriptions that we have implemented since 2007:
• Board development and governance - new bylaws, standing rules in progress
•   Create financial plan to fund true cost of organization - accompanists pay at market rate, health
    insurance for staff
•   Major fundraiser - the Ritz, for 3 years successful!
•   Creation of Caring Committee
•   Creation of Dev-Mark Committee
•   Seek funding based on our "healthy aging" model - Tufts Health Plan Charitable Foundation
•   Create comprehensive database of donors and contacts
•   Develop plan for use of the endowment
•   Annual Report used to promote the organization
•   Re-invigoration and communication about Heritage Society (a work in progress)
•   Using internet to fundraise - new e-newsletter "Staccato Notes"
•   Continue connections to local schools - Wayland Sings!
•   Continue connections to community - Wayland Business Association, MetroWest Nonprofit
    Network, Wayland 375th Committee, local Cultural Councils, etc.
•   Thanking donors immediately - plan implemented with individual phone calls

Even with these initiatives underway, I found myself asking: if Priority #1 in our vision statement is to
"Maintain our Excellent Program," how do we define excellence? It's not enough to say "I know it
when I see it." And excellence does not necessarily equate to "keeping everything exactly the same."
Change is inevitable, but shared core values, articulated well, can provide the foundation for adapting
as change occurs. It's been a good exercise to formulate what values we would want to maintain into
the future.

On the following page, you’ll find the “preamble” to our new Strategic Plan: an inventory of the
VALUES of the Golden Tones program, which in my opinion, and that of your Board, are ESSENTIAL

Respectfully submitted,

Deborah Lee Marion, Director

1. The program creates a synergy with its double outreach – to audiences and singers themselves.
   Audience members feel their spirits lifted as they sing along, and the singers themselves experience
   the enjoyment and meaning of doing important work in the community.
2. Live performances offer an immediacy like no other artistic experience. Audience and performers
   meet in a shared experience that they each help create for the other.
3. The program can demonstrate a positive model of conscious aging with grace and dignity. Our
   public appearances at schools, houses of worship, and community events, offer a strong role model
   of successful aging for the community.
4. Choral singing offers noticeable health benefits. Joyful vocalizing, deeper breathing, rhythmic
   movement, all buoy moods and boost immune system activity. When members face significant life
   health challenges, the program inspires them to rebound because they feel needed and long to
   return to the group.
5. We take pride in our product. Standards of quality matter, and can be met with an inclusive,
   non-auditioned chorus of amateur singers. We welcome all singers of retirement age, regardless of
   musical experience. Rehearsals focus on what the group can achieve together (e.g. clean entrances
   and cutoffs, dynamic expression, clear enunciation, attention to the director, confidence in
   delivery). Musical choices are made with both singers and audiences in mind. All members are
   given sheet music (not simply lyric sheets in most cases) and are offered orientation and musical
   education as needed. We work hard in rehearsal to deliver well-rehearsed shows. We create
   thoughtful, pleasing orchestration. We observe carefully chosen criteria for accompanists, soloists,
   and featured performers. We arrange our "stage" at each venue to ensure optimal visual contact
   between performers. Public performances merit extra preparation and are not "thrown together" or
6. Members' participation, growth, and experimentation can by encouraged while maintaining
   standards of quality. For example, holding "try-ons" for solo parts, instead of "try-outs," offers a
   chance for members to see if a song fits their talents and readiness without becoming a rejection
   scenario. The director can make suggestions for improvement, or for other material to try, even if
   the singer does not yet meet the accepted standard.
7. Individuals' independence and dignity can be honored with a combination of reasonable
   expectations and support where needed. Most members have the ability to perform the basic tasks
   required of them, such as organizing their own music, driving, and following directions to new
   places. Those who need assistance receive it from other members, as soon as the need is noticed.
8. Making music is inherently fun when it is approached with levity and allowance for making
   mistakes. Being in the chorus has to be enjoyable. Anyone can learn to be a good choral singer.
   Rehearsals are where making mistakes should happen. Professional musicians (director,
   accompanists) also make mistakes. Laughing together creates community.

The Dev-Mark Committee was formed by the Golden Tones Board in March 2009. This Committee is
charged with functions that are critical to our financial sustainability, as a balanced budget depends
largely on charitable giving:
    • DEV - creating, executing and evaluating a Development Plan
    • MARK - determining marketing approaches, messages, audiences, and vehicles
2012 Dev-Mark members included: Helen Brody, Francine Brown, Carole Felz, Caroline Jacobs, Judy
Kazunas, Marilyn Kucharski, Harvey Montague, Bob Mosher, JoAnn Wong, and Deborah Marion, who
continues as Chair Ad Interim. We welcome new member JoAnn Wong, and hope some new folks will
consider serving on this committee which is essential to the continuation of the musical program.

As you know, the bulk of our financial support comes from individual donors. Therefore, the theme of
our work continues to be DIVERSIFICATION, finding different ways to attract funding from many
sources. A summary of Dev-Mark projects follows:

Annual Appeal letters: Our traditional annual appeal mailing got a spiffy new look with our new
Silver Jubilee logo and fancy paper. The text, drafted by the Dev-Mark Committee, effectively
communicated what we do and why we need support, resulting in an unprecedented volume of
donations, many from new friends. Little gifts mean much to a small outfit like ours, and we are VERY

Puttin’ On a Little Ritz: The largest fundraising project undertaken in 2012 was the 3rd annual “Ritz,”
our FUNraiser held on Sunday afternoon, May 6th at Sandy Burr Country Club in Wayland. Festivities
included dancing to live music by the MidLife Crisis Band, homemade goodies, and a short Golden
Tones performance. Ticket sales, a 50/50 raffle, raffle baskets, a silent auction, a live auction, and both
in-kind and cash donations made the event a smashing financial success, once again exceeding
budgeted goals and expectations. Its success was a testament to the teamwork of all GTs members. We
hope to build on its success with the Silver Jubilee concert event in 2013..

Heritage Society: The Golden Tones Heritage Society is a group of Golden Tones members and
supporters who have pledged to make a bequest to Golden Tones, or to designate that in-memory-of
gifts may be given to Golden Tones Inc. Gifts “in lieu of flowers” is a recently created way to join the
GTs Heritage Society, with the hope that more singing members will find it a comfortable way to
benefit our organization beyond their own participation, into the future.

Online friend cultivation: Our challenge for 2013 will be continuing to grow our donor base using our
new E-News capability. We continued “Staccato Notes” with 3 issues leading up to our Ritz event, and
a final issue in December, to continuing positive reviews. The success of this communication vehicle
will depend on attracting subscribers and delivering content that they value, without overusing the
medium. Our website home page now offers a way to subscribe, and to view the most recent E-News.
As more people begin using iPads and computers, we hope to stay current enough to reach our
supporters in ways they increasingly find most convenient and we find most efficient.

Business sponsor program: In 2012 we attracted an additional sponsor who found our “Applause”
sponsorship program attractive. This program can appeal to local businesses who wish to make a live
presentation to our members. We hope to continue forming these partnerships, particularly those
involved with continuing health and wellness as people get older. We welcome your ideas and
introductions toward that effort.

Walk for Music: This annual event in late May continues to be successful and fun, giving our
members a chance to meet singers from other choruses and spend a lovely day walking around the
victory gardens in Boston.

Grantwriting: A large grant from Sudbury Foundation enabled us to engage an experienced
grantwriter to help us find support from family and corporate foundations. As a result of more than 25
proposals submitted, we received grants from Tufts Health Plan Foundation ($5,000), Framingham Co-
Operative Bank Foundation (now called MutualOne Bank Foundation - $3,000), and Bose Corporation
($500) – all foundations with a prior connection to our project. The remainder sent rejection notices or
did not reply at all, but we hope they read our proposal and gained some familiarity with our project.
It is clear that we need to cultivate relationships with new funding organizations to sustain our chorus.
Thus, with the remaining Sudbury Foundation funds, we plan to develop some of our own
grantseekers to take advantage of our consultant’s hands-on training and support as we bring this
effort in-house. If you love what we’re doing, you’re our best possible ambassador!

As always, your creativity, enthusiasm, and elbow-grease are essential to our success!

Deborah Marion, Dev-Mark Chair Ad Interim

The committee has met quarterly and has kept in touch during the rest of the year by email or phone
calls. We continue to keep those of our membership who have had medical problems in our thoughts
and prayers.

Early this past Fall we established the Bob Curtis singers, a new venture under the caring committee
umbrella. A group of 3-4 singers have been visiting the Parmenter Hospice in Wayland. We sing in
patients rooms, 2-3 songs which have been carefully chosen and are approved by the nursing staff. We
try to keep it quite simple and comforting. We are planning to visit a couple of chorus members after
the holiday season in their homes. In 2013 it is our hope to expand this program to other sights and
with other teams of singers. Two visits to Chorus members have also taken place.

Another new task that the Caring Chair has taken on this year is passing out a satisfaction survey to the
activities director or other appropriate person to be filled out while we are still on sight. Without
exception, these have all been very positive with strong emphasis on the enthusiasm of the chorus
members and of course our fabulous dancers and costumes.
We hope for good health and happiness for our entire membership.

Barbara Sutherland, Caring Committee Chair

The Golden Tones Board of Directors authorized the establishment of the Musical Artistic
Programming (MAP) Committee in the autumn of 2009 to advise and support the director regarding
the musical elements included in our concert programs. Currently the MAP Committee consists of five
members: Judy Kazunas (Chairperson), Phyllis Sonnenschein (recording secretary), Carole Felz,
Francine Brown, and Bill Storey, plus Helen Brody who attends as representative of the Board of
Directors, and Golden Tones Director, Debby Marion.

With the exception of any rare special meeting called to discuss some specific issue, the MAP
Committee meets four times a year in January, May, September and November.
Golden Tones 2012 Annual Report                                                       page 8 of 15

The Committee sets policy and discusses song repertory, themes for each season’s programs, the year’s
“mini-musical,” try-ons, criteria for selecting soloists, guidelines for the mix of solos, and dance
numbers for concert programs, and the role of the Nuggets. Several important discussions and changes
took place and decisions made by the MAP Committee in 2012:

•   The MAP Committee began in late fall to discuss the songs for the Silver Jubilee program and will
    continue with more in-depth discussion of this subject in the coming months.

•   Marilyn Darack (a former Golden Tones accompanist) retired from the MAP Committee. Marilyn’s
    presence on the Committee always brought a cheerful note and her suggestions were often used.
    We were sorry to see her leave. She was replaced by our drummer, Bill Storey, who has an
    impressive background of involvement in a variety of types of musical groups. We look forward to
    his contributions.

•   In September, the MAP Committee installed a “Suggestion Box” at our rehearsals. This gives all
    Golden Tones members an opportunity to submit songs that they would like to see included in a
    program some time. The suggestion box is emptied before each MAP Committee meeting and the
    submissions are sorted and considered. Naturally not all songs submitted will find their way to our
    programs (just as all songs discussed at MAP meetings do not end up in our programs), but some
    will be just what we’re looking for !

•  The most important change that took place in the MAP Committee structure this year is that the
   Board of Directors determined that it is a standing (not ad hoc) committee and needs policies for
   setting the size of the Committee, the criteria for membership, the appointment of new members,
   term limits/succession, and procedures for addressing these matters. After much discussion at the
   November , these policies were set, and are in place as our rules and references from now on.

The Music Library Committee maintains the music library by helping organize the music currently
being performed or rehearsed (kept in singers’ books) and maintaining the files of music waiting to be
used (in filing cabinets at the Town Building). Volunteers assemble extra books to have on hand for
newcomers and visitors, and help members keep their books up to date. In general, however, members
themselves are responsible for keeping their books current and bringing them to rehearsals and

Work continues on the following two projects:
• Removal of some older music from our files in order to make room for new music. This is being
  done because of limited storage space.

•   Creation of an accurate computer record of our entire repertoire including key in which piece is
    written; number of pages in song; type of arrangement (solo, duet, chorus, etc); source (musical,
    movie, television, etc.) and type of music (patriotic, Irish, humor, holiday, etc.).

With grateful appreciation and thanks to Debby, Helen Brody, Carole Felz , Gladys Gibbs, Barbara
Sutherland, and all the other Golden Tones members who helped with the music in 2012.

The function of the Membership Committee is to (a) prepare packets of information for prospective
members, (b) provide follow-up telephone calls to prospective members concerning any questions they
might have about any aspect of Golden Tones chorus policies or activities, (c) see to it that new
members have identification badges, beads (for women) and ties (for men), and appropriate music
books, (d) make additional contacts with new members addressing any further questions (e) provide a
Musical Mentor(M&M) to help acclimate the new member to the Golden Tones program and (f) make
new members welcome to the Golden Tones. This year the Golden Tones welcomed 11 new members
who have become valued members of our community and have added their voices to our mission.
