Three Things: My First, My Favorite, My Future (season 2, episode 6)

Season two, episode six of Three Things guests are violinist Alasha Al-Qudwah, journalist Sandy Wells, and coach/educator Bill Mehle.

FestivALL is proud to present “Three Things: My First, My Favorite, My Future.” A live monthly series showcasing three creative thinkers who will share insight into three of their own unique works. Each guest will share their own very personal story of where they started, what they love and where they are going. 

This show will provide patrons an opportunity to engage with artists, craftsman and professionals from every walk of life. Our audience will see and experience completed works, works in progress and hear about new and exciting ideas still in their infancy. We will feature musicians, writers, painters, actors, craftsmen, chefs, sculptors and professionals of every kind, from classically trained traditionalists to modern and cutting edge trendsetters. With “Three Things” we hope to push out the boundaries of what we commonly think of as art and peel back the surface to reveal the people behind these beautiful works.
