Dear Ms. McCabe:
We at Nassau Community College thank you for the wonderful concert
you presented on March 3, 1998. Your concentration on notable women
from your multimedia shows "Destiny of America: A Rock 'n'
Roll Version of American History" and "Heroes and Heroines"
served as an appropriate, memorable beginning for our month-long
program "Celebrating Women's Creativity."
We appreciated so many aspects of your epic rock music: the superb
musicians, the dramatic readings about historical figures, the photographs
projected on a screen behind the performers, the fluid dancer who
also signed, and your inspirational introductions to songs. What
we marveled at the most, however, was your own performance. Your
soaring, finely nuanced voice is the perfect instrument to do justice
to your impressive lyrics. The audience particularly enjoyed your
presentations of "Hiawatha," "Mother Theresa,"
and "Sojourner Truth."
We found your performance particularly suitable for our educational
institution. Our students love rock music, and you taught them--in
highly moving, professional, and inspirational ways--how esential
it is to remember the words and works of such heroines as Eleanor
Thank you for sharing with us your "Rock 'n' Roll Version
of American History." With yourself as a singer-songwriter
heroine, we certainly celebrated in grand fasion our theme for 1998
Women's History Month: "Women's Creativity."
