Home is where the heart is

Every seat in the Great Hall of the Norfolk Library was full. The audience ranged from toddlers held in their parents’ arms to gray-haired couples eagerly waiting to experience the music of the Dinuk Wijeratne Trio.

Solos and duets were brought to harmonic life by singers performing Sunday, Nov. 12, at Christ Church Episcopal in Sharon. At the left is soprano Marthe Ryerson, performing with soprano Donna Marie Castaner. Accompaniment was provided by organist Jon Lafleur. Photo by Leila Hawken

Tribute to a Survivor

She’d hide behind

a new identity — that was it.

more able to blend in.

She’d begin again.
