A one-hour, intimate and informal concert, featuring two incredible artist. Following the concert, please stay to meet the artists.

Stings & Stories is an imaginative, fast paced, interactive blend of music and theater that appeals to audiences of all ages. An innovative kaleidoscope of favorite stories, classical music, limericks and whimsical mime, Strings & Stories is fun and educational. The show-which includes Ferdinand the Bull, The town Where Sleeping Was Not Allowed, The Emperor's New Clothes and other beloved classics-premiered at the 1995 Imagination Celebration at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Since then, Strings & Stories has garnered rave reviews and enthusiastic praise from thousands of fans, both young and young at heart.

In addition to performing in schools, libraries, museums and community theaters, Linda and Bill also perform Strings & Stories for adult audiences in retirement communities, senior centers and other venues where people gather. Like the show for children and families, this version of Strings & Stories is lively, innovative and full of variety and humor. Adults enjoy a delightful mix of music, theater and literature in a program that includes the solo music of Back, classical short stories and a literary tour-de-force, "Why Beethoven?." by Leonard Bernstein.
