A Celtic Sojourn in Memory of Valerie Gunderson

From QuickNooz

Friends and fans of our late WGBH colleague Valerie Gunderson are invited to a special event: A CELTIC SOJOURN in memory of Valerie Gunderson Osiecki, Sat, 10/28 in WGBH’s Fraser Performance Studio.

The evening is part of a fundraising effort for the scholarship fund established in Valerie’s name by her husband Ted Osiecki and managed by The Cape Cod Foundation.

Fittingly, the scholarship supports college-bound high school seniors from Cape Cod or the Islands who are pursuing degrees in the arts, as Valerie — both a violinist and a published poet — had a passion for the arts.

Brian O’Donovan’s show and Celtic music were always favorites for her and her husband.

A CELTIC SOJOURN will broadcast on 89.7 as usual (3-6pm), and dedicate the last hour to Valerie with special guest performances from Fraser. A light reception (6-7pm) will follow.

Valerie, who died far too young at 59, was our longtime Director of Budget Operations and a key member of the WGBH family for more than 25 years. Feel free to spread the word to former ’GBHers.
