Mozart for Mother's Day Concert at Downtown Library

"M" is for "Mother" and "the million things she gave me," but "M" can also stand for "Mozart." 

But on Sunday, May 9, at the Downtown Library, 300 Park Avenue, the letter “m” will mean “masterpiece” when master pianist Wayne McEvilly presents “Mozart for Mother’s Day,” a free concert and part of the Ernestine Hill Clark Concert Series.  The music begins at 2:00p.m.  The program will be held in the library’s fourth floor 46th Star Auditorium and is suitable for all ages.

 McEvilly’s partnership with the classics of the piano repertoire has been a favorite of MLS library listeners since his move from California to Oklahoma City in 2004.

This concert series, McEvilly continued, “is part of my life's work to offer performances of Mozart, and other great composers, to everyone, all ages, no exclusions.”

A previous “Mozart for Mother’s Day” concert  at the Downtown Library attracted an audience from 1 to 101 years of age, enthusiastic teens, children with their families, working men and women, seniors and professionals.  “In a word,” McEvilly said, “everyone.”

“No one,” said Metropolitan Library System Development Coordinator Chris Carroll, “surpasses Wayne McEvilly when it comes to conveying the thrill of great music to an audience.”
