Marideth Sisco performing next week …
Beginning at 7 p.m., on Wednesday, July 10, noted singer and storyteller Marideth Sisco will be the second person to appear in Missouri State Museum’s summer program series, “Telling Missouri’s Stories.” Sisco, a veteran journalist, teacher, author, musician, and student of folklore, will perform “These Ozark Hills.” She received acclaim for her music in the Oscar-nominated film “Winter’s Bone” and will be sharing stories, and perhaps a song or two, about the Missouri Ozarks of yesterday.
This program series is part of the ongoing “Museum after Hours” events when the Museum stays open until 9 p.m., the first Wednesday of the month. (The July program is on the 2nd Wednesday due to the Fourth of July holiday events on the Capitol grounds.) In addition to the monthly Wednesday evening events, the State Museum is hosting interpretive programs for children (6-12) every Tuesday at 2 p.m., through September 24. The “Tuesdays at 2” programs are held in the museum classroom (History Hall, east wing). Upcoming programs include “Stories in the Stars Above” on July 2 and “Engraved Powder Horns: Documents of History and Events” on July 9. The events are free and open to the public.
Event time: 7 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Event Location: First Floor, State Capitol, 201 W. Capitol, Jefferson City, MO | (573) 751-2854
