Honored to narrate Peter and the Wolf
This is a great personal honor for me to be able to narrate this wonderful work of classical music, and childrens stories. I remember being introduced to classical music, as a child, by listening to Peter and the Wolf. I would listen to it over and over again, because I loved the story, and loved the way the story was told through the instruments in the orchestra. It was enchanting to me then, stirring my imagination as a child, and is just as enchanting to me now.
More music by Prokofiev and Haydn
The evening of music will include Prokofievs’ Classical Symphony, and Haydns’ Symphony No. 104 in D major.

Always pleased to see news of any new performance you are in but this one in particular. Like you this was a childhood memory that brings back so many warm feelings. I know you will be wonderful as the narrator, how could you NOT be so?
I have placed you on my “bucket list” of things to see before I go (nothing expected or soon I hope) but I would truly cherish to see and hear you perform one day.
Always best wishes for your talented work to continue.

Thanks Margaret. That would be fun. And then we could go out for drinks, or some food, and sit and chat. And laugh.
Someday dear friend, some day. : )
