This is a 60-70 minute program with musical selections by various composers such as Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein.
A REVIEW OF THE PERFORMANCE AT THE OCEANSIDE PUBLIC LIBRARY
FEBRUARY 15, 2018
“The Oceanside patrons enjoyed this uplifting and comedic show. Doreen interacted with the audience and made them feel like they were part of the action. She is a talented musician and performer, as is her pianist, Ann Zalkind. It was wonderful to work with both of them. I would highly recommend Doreen Firestone. If her performance at the Oceanside Library is any indication of how she’d perform in the future, Doreen’s show will be a wonderful addition to your program!
