It’s official….we want to give a huge thank you to the Chamber Music America Endowment fund for granting Rose & the Nightingale a 2013 Residency Partnership Grant. The grant makes it possible for us to go to Leala Cyr’s hometown of Green Bay, WI in April 2014 and teach K-8 students poetry techniques and basic songwriting/composition skills for transforming their original poems into song lyrics! We’ll be performing the kids’ songs at the Green Bay Botanic Garden, and playing our Spirit of the Garden repertoire at the Garden and the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. We’re excited to work with UWGB students in masterclasses, too. As so many of us know, it’s more than tough to put together touring & out of state residencies for creative art music, so we are really grateful and honored for this boost and support from Chamber Music America. THANK YOU! Public concerts are Thursday, May 1 at 6:30 pm at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay and Saturday, May 3 at 11:00 am at the Green Bay Botanic Garden.
