Songs of My Ancestral Roots

"I recently presented a unique classical recital that is built around the theme of family history.   All of the songs on the program have a personal connection to me because the lyrics or music were written by someone that I am related to.  I am fortunate to have discovered some famous kin among my family tree including Vaughan Williams, Samuel Barber, Thoreau and Emily Dickinson.  Some of the connections are rather distant but I find it exciting to perform music by members of my "family".  A powerpoint slideshow with pictures and charts showing the connections adds an additional element to this fascinating recital. This program can be adapted for classical recital series, family history conferences and church groups.  Please contact me to inquire about availability."
