Our inaugural event on Friday, January 28th was a great success! The evening began with host Annabelle Moseley welcoming the crowd to the debut of the Fourth Friday Studio Series, then introducing Gerry Saulter of Serenade Duo. Gerry played a selection of guitar pieces from Shakespeare’s time period, focusing on the composer John Dowland. Following this, Richard Bronson and Graham Everett read from their works of poetry, each closing with his favorite quote from Shakespeare. Annabelle Moseley recited Sonnet 147; then at the request of Serenade Duo, read the lyrics of a few John Dowland songs (1562-1626), which were then performed by Gerry Saulter and Michelle LaPorte. The evening continued with the poetry of Gladys Henderson and Gayl Teller, and their favorite lines of the Bard. Serenade Duo delighted the crowd one last time before the open mic.
