The Library’s 2018 Summer Concert Series Offers Something for Everyone

The Library is pleased to announce the dates for its 2018 Summer Concert Series, which will be held on five consecutive Wednesday evenings beginning on July 4. All concerts will take place in the Library’s Rockefeller Hall at 7pm, and they are free and open to the public. 

The series will open on July 4 with a solo piano concert by George Lopez, a former P.E.A. music faculty member and current Artist-in-Residence at Bowdoin College, who will perform and offer commentary on the last three piano sonatas written by Ludwig van Beethoven. The series continues on July 11 with a family-friendly performance by Brass Connection, a quintet specializing in popular music and show tunes. This concert will feature plenty of opportunities for audience participation, including children! On July 18, the Library will host P.E.A. music faculty member Petra Pacaric and friends in a concert featuring songs in a variety of musical styles and languages. Jazz lovers will enjoy the concert scheduled for July 25, which will feature a sextet performing a mixture of vocal and instrumental standards. The series will close on August 1 with a potpourri-style concert featuring P.E.A. musicians drawn from the entire campus community.
