The Orchestra used chord charts and some music notation to accompany Elizabeth Anne Mall's two original songs for voice and piano with strings. It was an exciting experience to work with her in crafting the use of our sounds mixed with her playing and singing. We had not done this since our "Ducktails" children's musical puppet show many years ago (see sidebar).
