Pianist Wayne McEvilly Brings The Romance of Chopin to Edmond Library

The famous Spanish cellist Pablo Casals once observed that “The heart of the melody can never be put down on paper.”

Pianist Wayne McEvilly is a master at finding that heart and presenting it for all to hear and he is bringing his “Romance of Chopin” concert to the Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, on Sunday, April 18, from 2:00 to 3:00p.m.

“Wayne’s series of concerts for the Metropolitan Library System have been among MLS’ most successful programs” said librarian Ronna Davis.  “The Edmond Library is honored to present him and his music to our customers.

“The concert will put the spotlight on Chopin, one of the all-time great creators of melody,” Davis added.  “This is not difficult music.  This is music you can melt into, music you can spend your whole life with.”

“The Romance of Chopin” is suitable for all ages.  The concert is free and open to the public.  To learn more about the event, please call the Edmond Library at 341-9282.  For more information about this or any Metropolitan Library System program, visit the MLS website, www.metrolibrary.org.
