Conservatory Sundays - Stephen Foster: American Dreamer

Jenny Gettel, soprano; J. Mark Baker, baritone; Teresa Drews, pianist; Tatiana Migliaccio, violin
Stephen Collins Foster (1826–1864) was America's first great songwriter. His melodies are so much a part of our history and culture that most people think they’re folk tunes. Many assume he was from the South, but he grew up in Pennsylvania and lived in New York City. Join us as we share the story and timeless songs of Stephen Foster.

Tickets: $5 general admission. Call 414/276-5760.

Sponsors: WMSE 91.7FM; Alterra Coffee; Metro Market
