Behind the Scenes of "Winter Song"

Posted 08 November 2017

This winter, holiday story and song will fill the Ellyn Bye Studio. Truman Capote’s tender holiday tale, A Christmas Memory, will be paired with Winter Song, an original presentation of music and storytelling created by the brilliant singer Merideth Kaye Clark and The Armory’s own Brandon Woolley with music direction from Mont Chris Hubbard. Merideth and the creative team began developing this cozy new show this past March and we've been documenting their progress ever since.
