LunART Festival Celebrates Women’s Voices by Back Porch Serenade, WORT

On March 3rd  Dr. Ugrčič and Mineral Point-based soprano Leslie Damaso shared news with WORT’s Back Porch Serenade about an upcoming preview concert that will take place on March 8th at Damaso’s Button Hill Studio in celebration of International Women’s Day.  In addition to fine music by women, the event will feature poetry readings, art by local artists, and hand-crafted chocolates.  Because of the festival’s popularity, Dr. Ugrčič is looking to expand from a week in June to a more extended series of concerts in the future.

Here is a super fun project I've been working on with my hubby in quarantine :) I think Lou Harrison would be okay with the found instrument substitutions we discovered in our apartment and minor changes in a solo part. Hope you enjoy it!
