In August of this year, Louise released Two Gardens, a CD of original compositions celebrating the two paths of growth for parents and their children. Louise has shared this video recording from her album release show, originally aired on August 7, 2020. It was video recorded in her mom's backyard in Downers Grove among her native plants. We will also be sharing another song from the Two Gardens release show later in the DGMC concert series.
Performing with Louise, are cellist Dorothy Deen and violinist Kelly Jozwiak. Louise thanks both Dorothy and Kelly for their insight and tender-loving care with this arrangement and others featured in Two Gardens.
Five years ago, thanks to a bequest from the Estate of Donald and Mildred Drew, the DGMC donated a new Feurich Concert I grand piano to the Downers Grove Public Library. DGMC dedicated the new piano with a concert intended to show off the new instrument, and the first piece on that program was Debussy’s "Clair de lune," performed by Chris Garofalo. What a fitting way to kick off our our webconcert series!View performance
