CSF Summer Series: Josh Innerst
This summer, we present a weekly series of videos featuring the artists you know and love from past Shakespeare Festival seasons. In this episode, the multi-talented Josh Innerst performs his original composition set to Shakespeare’s lyrics from “Twelfth Night” that we’re still humming along to.
