Happy Thanksgiving greetings, everyone from Cher & Gene Klosner.

We just want to let you know that our 2-disc lullaby CD Stardust arrived on the doorstep this week, and WOW!!! Did it ever turn out nice! The response to the music has already been great! Lots of the adults are now wanting copies just for themselves in addition to the kids smile Stardust is now available in the stores and available online (see below). Visit www.StardustLullaby.com to hear soundclips.

The artwork was created by Emmy award-winning "The Simpsons" Assistant Director and animator,(and Cher's hubby) Ben Lane.If any of you were at the Just Plain Folks gathering in Benson this Summer, you saw Ben play harmonica with Cher and sister Margy.

We worked with some amazing Midwest musicians on Stardust -, many from the Omaha Symphony, Omaha Conservatory, Mannheim Steamroller, and top -shelf jazz performers - Joey Gulizia, Andy Hall, Tom Hartig, Mark Motycka, Steve Raybine, Alexandra Rock, William Wolcott, Jerome Brich, David Downing, Tim Kobza, Dave Marsh and Tom Ware. Their talents took Stardust to a whole new level, and we're so thankful for all that they contributed to the project.

Other fun stuff…
Stardust Billboard through the month of December! If you are on 72nd St. in Omaha during the month of December, be sure to check out the Stardust billboard at 500 S. 72nd! From Dodge, if you are heading south on 72nd, you'll see it on the left side. smile

Two Catholic Voice Articles- The Catholic Voice just ran an article last week on Stardust in the People section, and in the same issue, Gene was quoted by author Eileen Wirth from her new book They Made All the Difference: Life-Changing Stories from Jesuit High Schools in which she has written some nice things about us. (Thanks Eileen!)

Omaha Family Magazine will be doing a feature article on us in their February '08 issue.

You'll hear our Mass for the Advent Season being sung at 18 parishes and institutions in the Omaha Archdiocese this year, and many more nationally.

"Please Don't Send Me Fruitcake" from our Ribbons and Pine CD has been performed by the Von Trapp Children and by several symphonies, including the Omaha Symphony, the Minnesota Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony and the Cincinnati Symphony conducted by the legendary Erich Kunzel.

We'll keep you posted on upcoming events, which include some "House Concert" performances in the Spring! More on this later.
Well, that about wraps it up for now. We hope you all have a beautiful Thanksgiving Weekend!
Cher & Gene
