Bob Wren Will Add Music to Heifer Tails Stories

Posted by Heifer Sacramento On Monday, September 07, 2015 0 comments

In this post, we want to tell you more about our line up of storytellers and announce that Bob Wren will add his musical talents to our stories!

Mary McGrath brings 30 years of storytelling performance to her audiences. She most recently performed with the Sacramento Symphony, at the Crocker Art Museum, and at festivals in Canada, Ireland, and Scandinavia. She has taught “The Art of Storytelling” at the Sacramento City College and produces programs with “Straight Talk Storytellers at Belle Coolidge library.

Ray Tatar has been the artistic director of the California Stage Theatre for 15 years. Prior to that he was the theatre and literature grants administrator for the California Arts Council. He has hosts Live Wire community programs on Access Sacramento for the past 8 years.

Diana Salgado Zuñiga developed her storytelling style during her 32 years working in the Heads Start School Program. She is currently a writer at the Hart Senior Center’s History Writing Group.

Nancy Griffith is a retired teacher that has always enjoyed the art of storytelling. 

Bob Wren has been playing the violin for 55 years, but he has also developed a large world music repertoire along the way. He led the Sacramento City College World Music Ensemble for 12 years and continues to teach music appreciation to students there. Bob's repertoire is as diverse as his range in playing musical instruments. Take a look at this video.

We are very excited to have Bob on board for this event. His musical talents will make the stories extra special. 

Big Thank Yous in advance to Mary, Ray, Diana, Nancy and Bob for generously donating their time and talent for this event in support of the work of Heifer International!!
