Designing Excellence with Historical Echoes - Historical Performances


After ten great years, Irene, Bonnie, and Donna have decided to disband Historical Echoes at the of this year. Irene and Bonnie started Designing Excellence dba Historical Echoes in 2012, and Donna joined them in 2018. This has been a wonderful and remarkable experience as we researched our characters, prepared our channeling of them, chose costumes, and finally shared them with you. Our hope is that the stories we shared moved and inspired you as much as they did us.

  • Thanks so much for an excellent presentation today about Willa Cather. It was informative and delightful.

  • I am excited about all the new reading possibilities. I also appreciated the zoom process more than I anticipated – you made this work! Thanks.

  • Now I've learned about another woman in history. The Matinee box was wonderfully packaged!

  • " We attended the program at the Arboretum on Sunday afternoon. Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed the tea and programs. Informative, enjoyable and the tea was a delight. It reminded me of tea on the lawn in the Lake District of northern England last spring. Thank you for all your research and efforts to make it a special afternoon!" — Attendee Comments

  • "This is a fun and productive way to learn real history about important women who challenged and changed history" — College Student

  • I loved participating with all of the personalities, but especially enjoyed Louise Thaden and real aviation! — Nursing Home Resident
