The Children's department is kicking off the "Ocean of Possibilities" Summer Reading Program with Swift Farms' Petting Zoo followed by a musical performance by "Little Rockers." The Petting Zoo is from 12:00 -1:30 pm in the library parking pot. The Little Rockers concert will be held in the Public Meeting Room from 1:45 - 2:30 pm.
Please join baritone, William Amory, and pianist, Ron Levy, for a rare opportunity to hear Franz Schubert's Winterreise, D. 911 (1828) in its entirety. Schubert’s dark song cycle was composed toward the end of his life as a setting in two parts of 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller. From beginning to end, it is an essay in loneliness and despair. There are many connections to shared feelings by all during the pandemic. Due to the time required to perform the cycle, the performance will begin at 2:30 PM. There will be a short intermission.
Performances will be held in the Public Meeting Room and are free of charge. Doors will open thirty minutes before curtain time. Seating is LIMITED TO 40 AUDIENCE MEMBERS and is on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED basis. Performances will be livestreamed through the library website (mclib.info) via Zoom. Please contact 973-285-6934 for more information.
Face masks are required to attend this event.
