Family Series News!

Due to COVID- 19, the last two Family Series sessions were cancelled. DO NOT DESPAIR! Plans for the 2020-2021 Family Series are under way. Family Series events are held at 2 pm on the third Sunday of the month at Godfrey Daniels, 7 East 4th Street, Bethlehem , PA 18015. These performances are open to the public for an admission price. Cops’n’Kids hands out free books to all children in attendance.

Ingrid Bohn, who ably piloted the Family Series for the past three years, turned the wheel over to Denise McCormack this Spring. In her three years of heading the Family Series, Ingrid increased attendance to the Family Series events. She moved the Family series to once a month for six months, allowing more families to take advantage of these concerts. We tip our hat to Ingrid as she leaves to assume other LVSG Board responsibilities.

Denise McCormack holds a Master’s degree in Education and has produced well-received one woman shows in the Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley areas. Expect stellar graphics and well designed publicity as well since McCormack has designed posters, bookmarks and other visuals for Lehigh Valley Storytelling events over the past five years. Denise has already forged relationships with other organizations in south Bethlehem, including the Southside Arts District. A member of LVSG’s Board of Directors, McCormack is President of Patchwork Storytelling Guild in Philadelphia (she designed their website). We expect big things from McCormack in her new role.

Oni Lasana and Kathy Long, the tellers who lost the chance to share their stories with young audiences this Spring, will appear in the 2020-2021 series along with other engaging performers.

The Family Series is a long standing cooperation between the Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild and Godfrey Daniels Listening Club.  Look for updates as we slowly come out of isolation and Summer passes.

Stay safe. Stay home. Tell stories.  Check our calendar for virtual events. We will see you in the Fall.
