Upcoming Musical Programs

The Morris County Library is excited for the return of adult musical programs in spring 2018!  At the end of 2017, the library was fortunate to purchase a new piano; with the thought that musical programs would certainly ensue.

The “MCL Concert Series” kicks off on Sunday March 18th at 3pm as Keely Schmerber christens the library’s new piano with an inaugural recital of music by Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, and Chopin.  Keely, age 21, is a senior at the renowned Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University.

The series continues on Saturday April 7th at 3pm with the Synergismus Trio.  Husband and wife musical team, Randy and Millie Calistri-Yeh, will be joined by pianist, Patricia Merlucci, for an exciting program of music by Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Mompou, and Bernstein.

The spring concert series concludes on Saturday May 5th at 2pm with a joint concert:  Sylwia Kloc & The Troubadours and “Ereni Sevasti Sings Joni Mitchell:  Stepping Out Of Blue.”   Sylwia Kloc & The Troubadours is a progressive indie folk group based in NYC.  Sylwia enjoys writing lyrics about love, longing, travel, and everyday life.  Together with bandmates, Kat and Anastasia, she brings them to life with a blend of rock, and world music. Ereni Sevasti, a recent addition to the voice faculty at Montclair State University, will present an immersive and intimate afternoon with songs from Joni Mitchell’s masterpiece album Blue.  Accompanying herself on guitar, dulcimer and piano with support from accomplished guitarist and MSU guitar coordinator, Darren O’Neill, Ereni celebrates the life and times of one of the world’s greatest singer-songwriters.

All programs will be held in the library’s Public Meeting Room.  Admission is free.  Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.  For more information:  973-285-6934.
