Audrey Johnson, a classically trained opera singer and founder of the performance platform “Of
Thee I Sing” will perform Songs and Stories of Heroism from the Women’s Suffrage Movement.
She will be accompanied by Lori Jessen, a local piano collaborative pianist.
This program will feature songs that are from the historical music from the Women’s Suffragette
movement. Johnson said, “…..they are very authentic and really bring the audience back in
time…into the lives of these brave Americans who were fighting together for American
women’s right to vote”.
The musical performance is intended to be fun and interactive for the audience of all ages.
There is much audience interaction with Johnson. Songs, stories costume changes and more
will be included.
Celebrating the recent centennial of American women’s right to vote, this program educates
and entertains while recognizing the struggle and sacrifices of the Women’s Suffrage
Movement’s most important figure.
Historical songs take the audience on a journey back in time into the lives of these brave
American patriots. Historical images, authentic costuming, an engaging spoken narrative and
audience participation make this a multi-sensory performance experience unlike any other.
This is not a typical recital!
Johnson will be performing around Siouxland from April 22-26. Included in her itinerary are the
Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, Dakota Valley High School, Hunt Elementary School, the
North Sioux Library and the Senior Center for Active Generations. Contact Karen Bourne
