Live Noon Tunes for Lunch Continue at Downtown Library

Do you ever hum softly or semi-whistle while you’re sitting at your desk, working away?  What you need is a lunch time music break. 

Bring your lunch to the Downtown Library Atrium, 300 Park Avenue, on Thursdays in January and February from 11:30am to 1:00pm for a variety of musical styles that will go down smoothly with your sandwiches and sodas.

“A live musical performance can really help break up the day,” said the Metropolitan Library System’s Director of Outreach Services Dana Morrow.  “Not only will the music itself re-vitalize you, but a quick trip to the library and lunch with friends will also help you prepare for the rest of the work day.”

The schedule for Thursday Noon Tunes is:

January 7:  ZuZu’s Petals, Indie violin/cello

January 14:  T.J. Haverkamp, jazz piano

January 21:  Travis Linville, songwriter

January 28:  Midwest City High School Jazz Band

February 4:  Stephanie Jackson, classical and pop guitar

February 11:  Oklahoma City University student pianist

February 18:  Stringents, rock string quarter

February 25:  Sequoyah Elementary Choir

All performances are free and open to the public.  For more information call 606-3833.

Noon Tunes is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Metropolitan Library System.
