Jennifer Hambrick of Classical 101 Speaks

“Words and Music” was the title of Jennifer Hambrick’s entertaining and informative September 12th address to the Central Ohio Branch of the National League of American Pen Women. Officers, members, friends, and guests gathered in the Friends Theater at the Upper Arlington Library on Tremont Road. Ms. Hambrick, engaged in multiple careers in music, writing, and broadcasting, is music director and on-air host for Classical 101 as well as creator, host, and producer of The American Sound.

As kick-off speaker for the branch’s 2017-2018 season of programs, she spoke in detail, not only about her broadcast responsibilities, but her years of musical education and impressive performance opportunities and activities as a singer and flutist. In the realm of classical music, Ms. Hambrick illustrated examples of the difference between “a good and a great performance,” comparing recorded musical excerpts for her appreciative audience. Jennifer is also a dedicated poet particularly drawn to Haiku, with rewarding success. She concluded her presentation by sharing some of poetry then fielding questions from the audience.
