Jessie Barth explores the connection between health, spirituality, music, and vocabulary as an author, teacher, publisher, and songleader. In 2009, she began leading popular Rodgers and Hammerstein sing-alongs at Highland Farm, the former home of Oscar Hammerstein II in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. She hosted “Lunch with Oscar and Anna” on the
lawn of Highland Farm, leading a Rodgers and Hammerstein SING! with 200 attendees. In January 2013, she and pianist Lori Rosolowsky joined forces to lead a South Pacific SING! in Hammerstein's former living room—where Hammerstein's grandson, Will, sang along. More than anything, Oscar Hammerstein wanted world peace. The SING!
events are a means to achieve that end.
Jessie was the director of the high school choral programs in Bellefonte and State College, PA (1971-1996) and has participated in many classic musical theater productions. Her favorite roles have been Anna in The King and I, Desiree in A Little Night Music, and Lucy in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
In 2013-2014, Jessie will accompany her husband, Richard, a former Vietnam War helicopter pilot, to Vietnam where they will be living for a year on the South China Sea.
