Singing Duo Tales And Tunes Makes Debut
Soprano songstress duo Tales and Tunes presented their debut performance before an audience of children and adults last Sunday at Christ Presbyterian Church. The duo, comprised of Suzanne Delahunt and Nadine Grisar, offered an entertaining children's program of singalong songs, and music accompanied stories to which audience participation was welcomed. An international theme ran through the show, from a song that began with "jambo" ("hello" in Swahili) to their concluding Yiddish tale that came out of Eastern Europe. They also played a song about saying hello in different languages, with Grisar playing a djembe (a drum from western Africa) and Delahunt on classical guitar (she also played a ukulele and keyboard during the afternoon).
The Tales and Tunes members are both teachers who have been offering music and stories individually for children for many years. Delahunt is a music teacher; Grisar's background is in theater and dance. They had been practicing since January for their debut.
