May 26, 2015

Five singers from the Good Globe Singing School recorded a show at the Spencertown Academy on May 22, 2015 for“The Monday Musical Matinee”on WGXC. The singers taught three songs to the audience (“Oak & Ash & Thorn,”“Sumer Is I-Cumen In,”and“Halantow") and gave their opinions on recorded performances and field recordings of that repertoire. Director, Sheri Bauer-Mayorga, kicked off the radio show, aired on May 26, 2015 with a classical dance party for listeners. This was inspired by the five singers who insisted that one of the songs, performed by“Coyote Run,”be danced to. Want to know a song well? Move to it!
