Seele-Musicale-chamber-ensemble-group-photoSunday, April 23rd, 2017 at 3:00 pm

Seele Musicale Chamber Ensemble returns to the Morrill Memorial Library on Sunday, April 23 at 3 p.m. with a program of predominantly Baroque music for voice, strings, and oboe. Seven members of the ensemble will perform works by Marcello, Bach, and Handel, as well as a premiere of a piece by the late 20th century composer, Alan Hovhaness. “Seele,” pronounced “Zayla,” is the German word for “souls” and refers to the soul of the music as well as the souls of the composers and the musicians. Part of the library’s spring Musical Sundays line-up, this concert is made possible through the library Endowment Fund.

To sign up, please call 781-769-0200, x110 or 222, email norprograms@minlib.net, or stop by either the Reference or the Information Desk.

Homegrown-string-band-logoSunday, April 30th, 2017 at 3:00 pm

The Homegrown String Band will perform at the Morrill Memorial Library on Sunday, April 30 at 3 p.m. to wrap up the library’s spring Musical Sundays concert series.  A modern incarnation of the old-fashioned family band popular before the advent of radio and TV, this quartet of husband, wife, and adult daughters will entertain the audience with a sound reminiscent of the string and jug bands of the ‘20s and ‘30s. Enjoy music made by an authentic family band playing instruments such as guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, banjo ukulele, mountain dulcimer, harmonica, jaw harp, and doumbek. The family has been performing at venues throughout the U.S. for 20 years, from the National Theatre in Washington DC to the Festival of American Music in Branson, MO.

To sign up for this concert, made possible through the library Endowment Fund, fill out the form below, call 781-769-0200, x110, or stop by the library Reference or Information Desk.
