Peggy Kohleris a professional opera singer now living in Bozeman who decided to organize an event to stuff Christmas stockings for children involved in our local Family Promise program. Family Promise is an organization working to help folks needing homes find a place to live.
Peggy organized a musical event at the library and involved some of Bozeman’s finest musicians, including Julie Gosswiller, Chandra Lind, Kayla Pierce and Frederick Frey. The event asked only for gift contributions for the stockings, and it also gave Bozeman a chance to enjoy classical music and marvel at the tremendous pool of talent we’re blessed with in this small mountain town.
Great photos, Thomas. I swear I can hear Peggy in that first image.
Thanks. She’s an amazing musician with an amazing voice and her resume is really impressive. How great that someone like that is here in our little burg and doing her best to not only help out, but also to point out the great entertainment qualities of classical music and opera. I think those genres have a really stuffy reputation and it’s so refreshing to see and hear someone of Peggy’s stature make it relevant and entertaining to regular people like us.
