2020 events!


13 August, Thursday afternoon, 5:00-6:00 pm PDT  online!

Join me in conversation with my friends in Seattle’s Medieval Women’s Choir for a lively discussion! I’ll be talking about what it’s like to base an important character on a good friend, and Molly (Marian) will share what it’s like to BE that friend. Michelle will talk about what we know about music in medieval convents. And we’ll all laugh about our teamwork in sorting out the basic concept and the detail.

The event is free, but you do need to sign up in order to receive the Zoom invitation.
