Local musician Judy Amdur returns to the St. Michaels Library for the Brown Bag Lunch on Monday, December 4, 2017 at noon. Ms. Amdur will continue her celebration of our “American Songbook”. She will continue with more composers and lyricists from the thirties through the sixties, including Cole Porter and Lerner and Loewe.These artists were storytellers, poets and masters of rhythm, melody and language, and Judy will reflect on their timeless appeal. These songs enrich us in so many ways and remain fresh in this new century.
Music has always played a major role in Judy’s professional life and in her later life on the shore. As a Speech Language Therapist for the Head Start Program in Fairfax County, she used music and drama to expand children’s language. Now she continues to sing with young children around the county informally, and for Mental Health Associations’ “Kid on the Block” character building program. She has appeared with local theater groups in several musicals and brings her keyboard to hospice. She loves to listen to all kinds of music, and loves to sing the enduring songs of the “American Songbook.” The Friends of the Library are sponsors of the speaker series and everyone is invited to bring their lunch or a snack and enjoy coffee and dessert provided by the library. All library programs are free and open to the public. For more information you can check the library website at www.tcfl.org or call (410) 745-5877.
