Soprano and doctoral student in music Joanna Manring announces that she has been conducting a "Jane Austen Singing School for Young Ladies" in Skaneateles this autumn, for pupils between the ages of 12 and 18. Ms. Manring reports that the school's first concert, in costume, will take place on Saturday, November 21, at 2:00 p.m. in the upstairs performance hall of the Skaneateles Public Library. Songs will include music from Jane Austen's personal collection, as well as a few solo songs from popular film adaptations; readings will be interspersed. The concert is free and open to the public, though donations are appreciated. Music-loving Janeites are urged to attend!
