Feminine Fusion

S07 Ep06: What’s In A Name?

Music Rose

“For what’s in a name?  Would not that which we call a rose by any other name smell as sweet?” – William Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet


How does an ensemble choose their name?  That’s the question posed this week.  A painter, a nun, even a comic strip, all inspired these ensembles.
