GENEVA – Geneva High School Spanish teacher Dina Bach – also a local singer and songwriter – will host a CD release party at 7:30 p.m. May 27 at EvenFlow Music & Spirits, 302 W. State St., Geneva.

The release party is open to the public, and there is no cover charge, Bach said.

“I will perform songs from my new CD, ‘Kiss Me Like That,’ which features six of my original songs,” Bach said. “It starts off as the first love, the first meeting, falling in love for the first time – and that is what the first song on the CD is called, ‘Kiss Me Like That’ and why it’s called that.”

As the CD continues, it goes through the different emotions and ups and downs of life and relationships, so there are some love songs, Bach said.

“The final song is about the ending of a relationship and going your separate ways,” Bach said. “Kind of ending your relationship, something that you know is not right for you.”

Bach plays piano to accompany her songs, but the CD has full music production, she said.

“I call it pop music, kind of singer-song writer style and very simple,” Bach said. “I have a pretty wide range. I sing alto and soprano. I am self-taught on piano, and I started writing music when I was 10. I kind of sat down at the keyboard and started playing. I never had any formal lessons, and I am naturally inclined to writing music and singing and playing the piano.”

Bach recently performed at SPACE in Evanston, has done more than 75 local shows and plans to promote her new CD through performing in the Midwest this summer, she said.

As a high school teacher, Bach joined the Geneva Jazz Band in concert this year, and has performed the national anthem at Geneva High School sporting events, as well as opened for the Clash of the Vikings – a variety show involving 12 of the school’s clubs and teams.

“People always ask me how do I have enough time to do all this music stuff because they always see me teaching, grading or doing lesson plans,” Bach said. “I honestly don’t know. I have a lot of energy.”
