Luminaries June Event
// Monday, Jan 1, 12am ET
Story performer Sally Perkins will share four short, delightful historical stories about two musical selections and an instrument we all know and love. The stories, carefully woven together with a beautiful, ancient Chinese folk tale, will illuminate the music but also provide great wisdom for our day and age. Sally will incorporate her background as a trained singer to enhance the telling of the stories.
