There will be a wide variety of music performed beginning with Nelly Bly written in 1850 by Stephen Foster which was a very well-known work at the time and is the origin of journalist and circumnavigator Elizabeth Jane Cochran’s pen name.

Dr. Christopherson teaches at the University [...] Read More
