Second Sunday Concert Series Continues at Downtown Library


See in the New Year with a free piano concert sponsored by your Metropolitan Library System.

The Winter presentation of the Downtown Library’s Second Sunday Concert Series will be a free piano concert on January 9, 2011, beginning at 2:00 p.m. Marcin Parys, a brilliant young pianist from Poland who is currently working and studying in the United States, will perform in the library’s 4th floor 46th Star Auditorium.

Parys was born in Krakow, Poland, and by the age of nine he had won a prize at the J.S. Bach International Piano Competition. He graduated from the Paderewski Academy School of Music and is now a graduate student at Oklahoma City University, studying with Amy Cheng.

“Marcin has played with the OK Mozart International Festival,” said librarian Darlene Browers, “so he’s no newcomer to public performance in Oklahoma and we are delighted to have him play at the Downtown Library. What better way to begin our Second Sunday Series in 2011 than an appearance by one of the brightest young pianists in the world?’

Admission to the concert is free but seating is limited. Seating opens at 1:30 p.m.

The program is suitable for all ages. The series will continue through June, 2011, with these concerts:
