is Dutch for "two singers". There's no mystical reason for our choice of that name, it just sounded neat! Simple,
straightforward, and.....silly! And even though now we are three singers, we'll keep the name 'cuz it's fun to say!
We are David Glenn Studer, Sophie Studer, and
Chris Davis. We play venues in the Ft. Worth/Arlington area of Texas, mostly coffeehouses and festivals.
Twee Zangers' specialty is presenting children's shows in North Texas public and school libraries for their
Story Time, Summer Reading Program, and other special events.
Chris is on the Advisory Board for the Alvarado Public
David and Sophie Studer play coffeehouses and other events around the area, a blend of
his, hers, theirs, and other artists' songs.
Library Shows -- David and Sophie play acoustic guitar and are the vocalists and storytellers. Chris
plays percussion instruments, puppets, and is the illustrator in Twee Zanger's special "See The Story" shows, in which
she draws characters and scenes from the songs as David sings them. The pictures are then given to the kids. All three Zangers
act pretty silly, and get many laughs!
Many participation songs make up the library
shows, which are tailored to fit with the themes chosen by the North Texas Regional Library System each year.
We do lots of "schtick", silly antics and
theatrical goofiness that keep the interest of children while we sneak in some lessons on everything from history to humanity.
Our opinion is that reading is the key
to the mind, and young minds will eagerly absorb things that are fun. We point them to their library as a treasure chest of
excitement, and impress upon them the idea that reading is an adventure that can be shared with parents, can be a bunch of
good tools for building a good brain, and can be just plain enjoyable!
Entertainment Venues -- David and Sophie on acoustic guitar and vocals, and sometimes Chris on electric
bass and harmony vocals. We concentrate on original material, plus putting a Twee Zangers twist on the songs of other
fine songwriters. Our schedule can be found on the Calendar page, and are usually coffeehouses.
