I was fortunate enough to see & hear Resie in a concert here in Phoenix in Dec 2006.
The choir is usually so far back that it is difficult to get good up close photos of them. However, near the end of the concert Phx Dec 2006 concert, the entire choir came to the front of the stage for a musical number (I can’t remember the song). I noticed Resie was limping badly & always wondered what happened. Resie will tell her story about the limp, below
I took a photo with a film camera & botched the exposure. I’ve never had another opportunity to take a photo of the entire choir up close.
Prior to this concert I met Luca & Franco outside the concert hallway & asked them for the names of the 2 new choir members. I was told their names are Resie Vahsen & Laura Engel & they described each to me.
By the time I got home & composed my concert report I’d mixed up the names with the faces, hence; I described Laura & gave her the name of Resie. I then described Resie & gave her the name of Laura.. Verily I have sinned against Laura & Resie.
And as I was mixing them up, Andre? was misspelling Resie’s name RESI
I don’t know which is worse, misspelling a name or calling them by someone else’s name.
My sincerest apology to Resie & Laura, both choir members, for mixing them up.
9 Jan 2010 – HERE IS THE LATEST NEWS FROM RESIE IN HER OWN WORDS
"The limp I had in dec. 2006 I can remember very well. I dismounted the bus in L.A. in a rather spectacular way, landing with my foot in an odd position behind me and in a lot of pain. My friends later told me that I shouted at them when they tried to pull me up, as they were accidentally folding my ankle even more while trying to do that. Eventually I managed to get up myself and immediately saw a doctor. My ankle was strained to its limit and apparrently I was lucky that nothing was actually broken. For weeks I had trouble walking on it and the first week after it happened I couldn’t even wear a shoe on that foot, while the ankle was swollen and showed an interesting display of colours. I also remember we had a good laugh about the purple hairy sock I wore during the concert under my dress to protect my foot from getting cold.
Anyway, that’s the story about my limp."
Resie is now performing with the Bach Choir of The Netherlands

The orbital workshop was divided into two major levels: a lower level for crew living quarters and an upper level station for experiments and equipment.
