Open To The Pub­lic North­east King­dom Civil War Roundtable

A Spe­cial Mu­si­cal Event & Din­ner

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

New­port, VT

All For Rea­son­able Price and No Reser­va­tions Nec­es­sary As al­ways there is no busi­ness meet­ing, no trea­sur­ers re­port, no min­utes of the last meet­ing and no darn Robert’s Rules of Or­der.

You don’t have to be a his­tory buff to en­joy an evening with us ; but for this mu­si­cal show, it more true than usual. Also! no one is go­ing to bug ya to join the group. We just like com­pany and shar­ing knowl­edge.

Linda Radtke will be our guest speaker / singer.

She was a high school teacher for 31 years and now works for Clas­sic Ver­mont, WCVT 101.7 A clas­si­cally trained singer, Linda has served as the prin­ci­pal alto soloist for the Mozart Fes­ti­val and is

a mem­ber of the Robert De Cormier’s pro­fes­sional vo­cal en­sem­ble, Coun­ter­point. The Ver­mont Civil War Song­book is a pro­gram Linda does through the Ver­mont Hu­man­i­ties Coun­cil.

Dressed in pe­riod cos­tume, Ver­mont singer Linda Radtkke shares songs pop­u­lar in Ver­mont dur­ing the Civil War as well as let­ters from Ver­mon­ters from the era. From sen­ti­men­tal songs about the girl back home to satir­i­cal bal­lads, The Ver­mont Civil War Song­book fea­tures the sheet mu­sic col­lec­tion from the Ver­mont His­tor­i­cal so­ci­ety. Linda’s ac­com­pa­nist for her Speaker’s Bureau pro­grams is Arthur Zorn, a re­tired, long­time mu­sic teacher at Spauld­ing High School in Barre and a mu­si­cian known through­out Ver­mont.

You can sit home and watch re­peats on the T.V. or you can come out with us for lively time and get fed in the process.

If the sub­ject in­ter­est you, please con­tact Tony O’Con­nor 802 7664747.
