Women's History Presented in Music
FEB. 25, 2005--Folk singer and storyteller Gerri Gribi will perform "A
Musical Romp Through Women's History" at 7 p.m. March 9 in the Sanford
Syse Theatre of the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building at UW-River Falls.
Gribi’s songs and stories celebrate women’s diverse heritage
from Colonial times to the present, including women who defied stereotypes,
black women fighting slavery, a woman who disguised herself as a man to
get into the Navy, and Native American women who inspired the American
women’s rights movement and the suffragists. The audience will meet
these and other remarkable women during this uplifting, often hilarious
performance, which involves the audience in a yodeling lesson!
Free tickets are available at the University Theatre box office before
3 p.m the day of the performance. A limited number of tickets are available,
and remaining tickets will be available at the door 30 minutes prior to
Sponsored by the UW-River Falls Women’s Studies Program, the concert
is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Barbara
Werner at 715/425-4895.
