Michael Morrissey is a local attorney. His wife Shawna was named the 2016 Idaho Young Mother of the Year by Governor Butch Otter. They are the parents of eight talented musicians who range in age from 5-17.
The Morrisseys have lived in Pocatello for nearly a decade and have been the beneficiaries of wonderful piano teachers including Angela Ferrara, Jennifer Scow, Amy Parrish and Laura Larson. They have also learned in Pocatello’s outstanding orchestra programs, including after-school strings, middle and high-school orchestra and the Idaho State Civic Youth Symphony for which their oldest daughter is currently the concertmaster.
The Morrissey children will perform piano solos including John Schmidt’s “All of Me,” Edvard Greig’s “Wedding Day at Troldhaugen,” Frederick Chopin’s “Nocturne” Billy Joel’s “Root Beer Rag” and more. They will also perform number of string pieces including Johannes Braham’s “Hungarian Dance No. 5,” Michael Giacchino’s “Jurassic World,” Gioachino Rossini’s “William Tell Overture,” and what performance would be complete without the popular folk song “Boil Them Cabbage Down.” The family will also sing several fun songs accompanied by the ukulele and the guitar.
Join us at Pocatello’s Marshall Public Library for this free hour of music. For more information or if you are interested in performing at the library, please call Amy Campbell at 232-1263 ext. 106.
