The man is gone, but The White Barn is assuring that Noel Coward’s melodies, richness of harmonies and the superbly inventiveness of his lyrics live on.

Coward’s works will be performed by Napa Valley’s Tim Setzer, Patrick Sprinkel, and Kathi Brotemarkle, with narrator Michael Ross as Noel Coward and piano accompaniment by Nancy Garden and Elaine Elder.
