On Sunday November 23rd from 5:45 - 9PM will be our main fund raiser at Bodles Opera House in Chester NY.
invited to attend a special concert to lift your spirits and make a
difference in the life of a child. Please pass this information on to
people who love music & children. The concert will feature the
area's finest musicians and singers who have generously donated their
time for this event. They include:
Claudia Cummings - opera
and Broadway star who made the song "Climb Every Mountain" from the
Sound of Music one of Broadway's most memorable songs. Claudia has also
formed her own Opera company: operacompanyofthehighlands.org
Margoshes - Steve composed the music to the Broadway show "Fame" and he
is an incredible pianist. Steve will play his own set and
accompany Julie Ziavras: stevemargoshes.com/steveMargoshes.html
Ziavras - Julie can go from singing Puccini to Joan Baez (she sounds
better than Joan). And I hope she'll give us a taste of both at this
concert. She is one of the most talented musicians/singers I've ever
met (and I've heard many) kenandjulie.com
Zintz - a singer who can touch your heart like no one else. Marji has a
special vocal quality that goes straight to your heart. She covers Joni
Mitchell better than Joni. http://www.myspace.com/marjizintz
Sheehan - unquestionably the finest finger picking guitarist this side
of the Mississippi. John also has some classically influenced originals
that I hope he'll share with us. johnsheehan.net
Joanne Barclay - Great Highland Bagpiper will share with us the magical sounds of one of the world's oldest instruments.
Wayne Fugate - a master mandolinist
