By Request

May 13th, 2017,
2:00pm to 3:30pm
Kym Frankovelgia will start out with a terrific selection of some of our favorites. Then, you can request songs you would like her to sing. It could be something from the Broadway stage, funny selections, romantic or touching music, or any songs you've previously heard her sing. Really, the show is all about you and what you would like to hear.  Kym takes all requests, but will sing only what she knows, because if it can't be done well, it won't be done at all. Join us for what promises to be a wonderful afternoon of music.

Hank Williams ranks among the most noteworthy composers of all time. His ability to convey profound experience with simple lyrics and melodies was uncanny. In 1954, Tony Bennett introduced Hank to a mainstream audience by recording "Cold, Cold, Heart" and subsequently, Hank's songs have been covered by 100s of famous singers. Patsy's stunning vocal talent and unique ability to embody emotion with her voice "set the gold standard" for female vocalists.
