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.
