Shamrocks & Thistles – Music from Ireland and Scotland – July 23, 2010

New to Summer Music at Grace this year, Melissa Ewell and Gianna Izzo Messier perform Scottish and Irish music in a program called “Shamrocks and Thistles – Music from Ireland and Scotland” on Friday, July 23rd, 2010.

Gianna Izzo Messier is a native of Williston, Vermont.  She holds a Masters Degree in Music Education from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Bachelors Degrees in Violin Performance and Music Education from the University of Vermont.  Gianna teaches instrumental music at Swanton Elementary School.  She has performed with the Burlington Chamber Orchestra, Champlain Valley Oratorio Society, the Burlington Choral Society, the Hanover Chamber Orchestra, and the Vermont Symphony Orchestra.  Gianna lives in Swanton with her husband Armand and their daughter Madeleine.

Melissa Ewell grew up in New Britain, Connecticut but has deep family roots in Vermont going back to the early 1800’s.  She earned a Masters Degree in Arts in Education from St. Michael’s College and a Bachelors Degree in Music Education from Johnson State College.  Melissa has taught music in public schools in Vermont for 32 years, most of them in Swanton.  Choosing early in her piano career to be an accompanist, she has played for dozens of concerts, recitals, musicals, operas, and operettas and performed from 1983 to 1993 at Master Classes taught by the eminent vocal coach and accompanist John Wustman.  Melissa lives in St. Albans with her husband Michael and their canine child, Trailor, the Bernese Mountain Dog.
