The Friends of Middletown Thrall Library Inc. Present

Here's to Life!

A Musical Performance by Jeanne MacDonald

Sunday, December 1, 2013, 2 PM

in the 2nd Floor Community Room at Middletown Thrall Library

Award-winning performer Jeanne MacDonald's brings to Thrall Library a show that blends music from a diverse group of songwriters and lyricists, including Johnny Mercer and Hoagy Carmichael, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Irving Berlin, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Paul Simon, and more! Although separated by many years in some cases, these songwriters are connected by their ability to write songs with compelling stories about people and things to which listeners can truly relate.

As a performer, Jeanne MacDonald has earned a reputation singing in a way that allows her audience to have a shared emotional experience as they hear these songs. As a leading cabaret singer in NYC, Jeanne MacDonald received extensive recognition for her performances both in and out of the city, and her intelligent interpretations lead Peter Leavy of 'Cabaret Scenes' to describe her as "a lyricist's dream."

This event is free and open to the public.

Managing Holiday Temptations

Although the average holiday weight gain is 1 to 5 pounds, which may not seem like a lot, it can add up over the years.

Instead of depriving yourself of your favorite holiday sweets, learn some recipe substitutions and healthy eating strategies that can help you enjoy holiday dishes without all of the guilt!
