Noon Tunes Series Continues At Downtown Library

Do your afternoons at work sometimes seem to drag?  What you need is a lunch break that re-energies you.

Bring your lunch to the Downtown Library Atrium, 300 Park Avenue, on Thursdays in May and June from 11:30am to 1:00pm for a variety of musical styles that will go down smoothly with pasta salad and iced tea.

“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:

May 7 ~ Susan Mogilka and Chris Babcock, dance music

May 14 ~ Wayne McEvilly, classical piano

May 21 ~ Joe Baxter, American acoustic music

May 28 ~ Classen Strings, Classen School of Advanced Studies

June 4 ~ Sunshine Hahn, blues music

June 11 ~ Oklahoma Flute Choir

June 18 ~ Stringents = (strin’jant), rock string quartet

June 25 ~ Contra Dance Demo backed by Suspicious Contra Band

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