Reidl Family and friends traditional Austrian sing-a-long

Reidl Family and friends, including soloist Shelley Imholt, perform traditional Austrian folk tunes, with the emphasis on yodeling tunes, including the Swiss “Cuckoo” song with audience participation. The yodeling tradition started as both a means for shepherds to communicate across valleys, and young lovers to pass private messages. The Adult Center Theater event on Dec. 1 also featured a Sound of Music sing-a-long, with “The Lonely Goatherd” acted out by Maza Brady with puppets, Pam Reidl, Irene Fields (who also painted the backdrop) and Tom Imholt as the baby, with Gary Young, Helmut Reidl and Ken McCarty as the three goatherds in the tavern.
