She has taught classes locally at Balance Yoga Studio in Richmond, as well as at the Lund Family Center in Burlington through Sangha Studio’s yoga service program. Classes are $10 each, with $1 of that fee for the Huntington Public Library. While classes are drop-in, it would be helpful to know ahead of time how many plan to attend.

The Huntington Music Box 

Hear something new, share something old. Good music like a good book feels like it should be shared and enjoyed by as many people as can get their “ears” on it. Valley Stage Productions has had the good fortune to hear and witness a lot of music from the concerts we’ve been able to attend and produce as well as conferences of musicians and just normal acquisition of CDs and LPs throughout the years.

There is a box of CDs that Valley Stage will “initiate” on the table as you enter the Huntington Library that you are free to take, borrow or add to. Take what you like, listen to it for as long as you like and share! We’d also suggest that musicians contribute their work to the collection. Exposure to your compositions could result in people attending a performance of yours in the future or perhaps an acknowledgement of your talent the next time you stop into Beaudry’s or cross paths at a Huntington function.

If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to contact Don Sheldon;

 802-434-4563 or don@valleystage.net
