Micheal & Bonnie Jorgensen Present "More Theodora" Bjorling Recital Hall

Bonnie and Michael Jorgensen are proud to share this second presentation on the Norwegian-American composer Theodora Cormontan (1840-1922). Theodora emigrated from her native Norway to southern Minnesota in 1887 and spent the next 30 years of her life here, until she moved to the Aase Haugen Home in Decorah, Iowa in 1917. Since rediscovering over 150 of her handwritten manuscript compositions in 2011 (in addition to a number of her published works), the Jorgensens have researched and rehearsed in order to share a composer's story and artistic expression. Bonne portrays Theodora (an accomplished pianist). Michael tells Theodora's story and sings.
