Donna Gunn, nationally certified teacher of music (NCTM), will give a free presentation titled “Music on the Trail: Where American Folk Songs Meet Classical Art Music,” at the Lincoln Music Teachers Association (LMTA) membership meeting from 10-11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, at Fellowship Community Church, 8601 Holdrege St. The public is welcome to attend.
A longtime LMTA member, Gunn has been on the trail providing music education programs throughout Nebraska. The wagons bring her home to provide a program made possible with support from Humanities Nebraska.
From Westport, Missouri, to "Oregon Blue," Gunn's performance will help you experience life on the Oregon Trail. Sing Oregon Trail folk songs, hear personal stories from the early travelers and listen to solo piano pieces based on the folk songs that are interwoven into the canvas of the covered wagon way of life.
Any interested person may attend at no charge. Register using the LMTA.info "Contact Us" button since space is limited.
