Of course, there are always - at most - six degrees of separation between any two people or topics.  In literature and music, mermaids have always been a popular subject.  In the Romantic period, composer Clara Shumman set German poet Heinrich Heine's  "Die Lorelei," to music as an art song.  It's been wonderfully arranged as an SSA piece by Brandon Williams, available ..read more

Host Steve Fisher talks to his good friend and fellow choir director, Thabang Mokoena, to see how he and his Lesedi Choir members are coping.
