McIntosh, Story Laurie Around the World in An Afternoon Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Starting with a folk tale from the small island nation of Haiti, I will take students on an imaginary journey across the Atlantic, where they will meet characters commonly found in European and African folklore. We will continue our journey around the globe, with a stop in Asia, then the South Seas and finally back home to the United States. As we travel, we will talk about why people tell stories, and explore why similar stories appear in a different cultures around the world. During the 30-60 minute concert (program length and repertoire adjustable to suit your scheduling and curricular needs), listeners will be active participants in the program, both as an audience who delights in the magic of stories and songs from such a wide variety of cultures, and as “explorers” who help me answer questions about the tradition of storytelling and the stories themselves. At turns hilarious and serious, Story Laurie magically glides from one character to the next, employing her marvelous vocal skills, gestures and facial expressions. Perfect for libraries, schools and community events -- Laurie has a knack for enchanting both young and old equally!

Hoffman, Nan 2014 SRP availabilty Music
Hi I trust you are looking forward to summer. It has seemed that winter was especially long this year. By this time you are probably well advanced in your planning for the Summer Reading Program. This year the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System has asked me to appear at all of their branches as part of a Family Literacy Services Grant. I feel honored to have been chosen for this series, and I'm very grateful. But, I will miss traveling to many other libraries that I've had the pleasure of visiting in past years. I've enjoyed being in many of your libraries and working with you and I'm planning to be available again in 2015. I will stay in touch and hope to be considered for a program then. I am available for concerts and workshops throughout the rest of the year, including this fall. Please feel free to contact me for further information or to schedule a presentation. In the meantime, I wish you all the best during your 2014 SRP. With warm regards, -Nan

Willis, Audrey Songs of Christmas Past with mondoRAJ History,
Music
Music is the background of our lives. It colors our world and helps to unite us as people. It also reminds us where we've been and how we've overcome during troubled times and how we've thrived in good times. mondoRAJ performs songs from several decades. Including songs influenced by our troops being overseas. How these songs attempted to give us hope for a return to normalcy. While other songs existed just to bring us joy. We play a selection Holiday songs performed in a jazzy style. Songs may include White Christmas, I'll be Home for Christmas, Deck the Halls... and many more! We can add more children oriented songs based on the number of children in the audience. But we also remember than anyone can be a child at heart.
