About Our Speaker
David Judson

David Judson David Judson is president of Judson Studios, the fifth generation of the Judson family to lead the studio since it was founded in 1897. David oversees the studio's creative process, where he works with architects, designers, and artists who turn to Judson for its legendary work in stained glass. In 2015, he opened the second Judson Studios facility which incorporates the firm's innovative fusing technology that allows fine artists to express their vision in glass. David is the president of the Stained Glass Association of America (SGAA) and lives with his family in Pasadena, California.

Judson is a world-renowned family of artisans who began crafting stained glass windows in Los Angeles in 1897. Five generations have worked with artists, architects and designers to create Old-World-style stained glass whose quality and craftsmanship has often been compared to the work of Louis Tiffany. Judson Studios is famed for its Craftsman glass. Their work with Frank Lloyd Wright on Hollyhock House in the 1920s was recently re-saluted when the house was named to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list.

JUDSON: Innovation in Stained Glass Join us for a very special virtual event celebrating the work of Judson Studios with fifth generation president David Judson, author with Steffie Nelson of the new book, JUDSON: Innovation in Stained Glass (Angel City Press). From the earliest days of the studio during the Arts and Crafts Movement to the newly refined fused stained glass used in today’s contemporary buildings, Judson Studios has been recognized internationally as among the world’s finest stained glass artistry.

For the time being, the Salon will continue to meet on Zoom. When appropriate, we will meet in person once again at Arroyo del Rey.

“You’ll Never Walk Alone”
from Carousel

Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein, Music by Richard Rogers
Soloist: Dean LeGrand Carlston, DDS

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of a storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone.


Healing with Music
Nancy Glowacki 2020

“Healing arises from seeing ONLY the true perception of self and others...letting all judgments go”. I wrote this simple four line song for a special peace trip to Russia in 1990. I sang this in a peace concert while people stood holding hands in pairs and sang this to each other and hugged in affirmation of peace...truly beautiful. “When I see only the love in you....when I see only the light When I see only the peace in you...then everything feels so right”

On Writing Songs for Children (which actually includes adults too!)

Young children are like open books and absorbent sponges...they welcome ideas and actions that bring good feelings. Especially through music, they learn how to heal themselves and others . When they are also asked to share their feelings to a good listener...they can release the sad, mad and hurt ... and know that all feelings are like a window to our soul ...they can lead us to a higher road. And young ones are quick to expand that thinking to other children and people of the entire planet. This song is a comforting, healing connecting song. With all ages, we would sing this song while passing the soft planet ball around and hugging it with love as it passed! In the true sense of Oneness and connectedness, this song places your healing energy of caring into yourself and the universe...believe in it!”


"Hug the World"
N. Glowacki 1988

Hug the world before you say good-night…
send your lovin’ thoughts in a lovin’ light
For this home that we all share, let’s live in peace and care…
hug the world before you go to sleep tonight.

(1) If a special place is hurtin’…send a thought that’s certain
To let that troubled spot know there’s a friend…
Each life, each land…can feel your outstretched hands
And sense a flow of love with no demands.

(2) Just imagine that you’re holding hands…
with someone near or far
And looking deep into their eyes you say….
”I know’re just like me
Wanting to live peacefully…
No one really wants it differently


"Peace Like a River"
Words/Music by Alula Tzadik

This are all the words … sung repetitively


"It Is Well With My Soul"
Lyrics by Horatio Spafford 1873
Music by Philip P. Bliss. 1876
Soloist: Susie Katharine Shaw

When peace like a river attendeth my way;
When sorrows like sea billows roll.
Whatever my lot,
Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul.
It is well
