Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Sing Books descriptions and write-ups

Posted on: January 28, 2013

I’ve had the occasion lately to write up a few profiles and bios explaining what Sing Books is and why I’m doing.  I’m posting a couple of them here so that I can see them in print and maybe provide a few perspectives on what I’m actually doing here!  To me, the best way to explain it, is to DO it!

With Sing Books what matters most is the DOING.  But sometimes one must use words of explanation to get folks to come along for the experience.

Here are a couple of my latest attempts:

A bio for “LOVE STORIES: IT TAKES ALL KINDS: A Valentine Cabaret at Maggie’s Cabaret” on Friday, February 1, 2013:

Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus is thrilled to be at Maggie’s again singing with dear friends. Emily’s live-performance program and blog SING BOOKS WITH EMILY synthesizes Emily’s experience in musical theater, cabaret, recital, motherhood and teaching and her love for research, song, and picture books. Emily performs her SING BOOKS WITH EMILY program many times a week at local schools and libraries and daily explores and chronicles the wonderful world of Singable Picture Books in her blog:

A bio for “SING BOOKS WITH EMILY at Reading a Family Affair (RAFA), Literacy Council of Northern Virginia” on Saturday, March 2, 2013.  This bio was written by one of the event organizers, but I liked it not written by me, using words to describe my program and experience that what I generally use:

The mission of Sing Books with Emily is to share the wonderful world of Singable Picture Books which combine the magical wonders of music, text, and illustration. Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus has been nominated for a 2010 Washington Area Music Association (WAMA) ”Wammie” in the “Cabaret Artist” category. She premiered her show “Oh, What a Beautiful Day: Sing Books with Emily, the Cabaret” in June of 2011. In August of 2011, Emily returned to the Kennedy Center to perform in a Staged Reading of the new musical “Kris Kringle, the Musical” as part of the Page to Stage Festival.

My new write up for the DC Cabaret Network Newsletter:

Emily Leatha Everson shares her unique program SING BOOKS WITH EMILY, synthesizing live performance, educational discussion, music and song through the vehicle of the Singable Picture Books.
