Beth's Picnic Concert

Beth and her music was a fabulous addition to our Glenora Community Picnic in the Park. She created the perfect atmosphere that reached from our youngest to our eldest community members. We loved her interaction with the children and how she included them in her music and encouraged them to move and dance. She is truly delightful and we hope she will join us again at our next Picnic in the Park. She knows how to make your event feel special! If you’re looking for personable, beautiful music, Beth is the one to book!” - Glenora Community League
