I had the privilege to perform at the beautiful, Weill Recital Hall, in Carnegie this spring. I did movement accompaniment to a choral piece sung by the Vivace group of the Badger State Girl Choir. My 8-minute solo was accompanying a series of three civil war songs: Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier, When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again, and We’re Tenting Tonight. I had a beautiful blue Civil War gown that I wore with my tan jazz shoes. A stool helped frame the solo and tell a heartfelt narrative of a woman at home while her husband is away fighting in the war, paired with the sweet voices of girl choir, made for a worthwhile performance.
