Barbara Gallagher's inner musical world connects with the outer world in many forms and shapes, including solo piano CDs, dance and theater works, classical instrumental pieces and folk-type songs; in whatever form it takes, it is, as Barbara puts it - "what I wanted to hear but couldn't seem to find anywhere else except for my own imagination".

Hi Barbara your profile popped up in the "what's new" and it piqued my interest b/c I'm travelling to Wilmington tomorrow for business. "Dancing Into the Light" is a really nice orchestral piece. It's rare to find pieces like this that really succeed (art music composition is difficult).

Best regards,

Jeff
