Two outdoor performances this weekend

Hello Friends!


Nathalie Fortin and I are performing two recitals this weekend and you are invited:


7 pm Friday, Aug 7 near Edgewood Elementary (E. 46th Avenue). My friend Robin O'Gara is giving us a stage on her front porch at 490 E 46th Avenue in south Eugene. It is directly across from the track/field so you can bring your own everything and sit on the grass across the street. Please practice distancing and mask-wearing.


6:30 pm Sunday, Aug 9 in Lafferty Park. Corey Dingman is loaning us his driveway and electricity on Mary Lane as a stage. Visitors can picnic and spread out in Lafferty Park to hear the music. Bring your own everything and follow distancing and mask-wearing regulations.


The music we are singing will cheer us all up:
