Pianist Wayne McEvilly Returns To Downtown Library for Free Concert


“Music,” said the American poet Sidney Lanier, “is love in search of a word.”

You won’t have to search long for the music as master pianist Wayne McEvilly returns to the Downtown Library, 300 Park Avenue, on February 13 at 2:00p.m. as part of the library’s “2nd Sunday Concert Series.”  His program is called “Romance of Chopin,” and contains sixty minutes of music and conversation about Chopin’s love for the piano.  McEvilly’s selections include waltzes, nocturnes, ballades, and the popular “Revolutionary Etude.”

“Wayne has been filling our lives with beautiful music for several years now,” said librarian Darlene Browers, “and with any luck he’ll be our guide to the romance of Chopin for years to come.”

Everyone is invited to this free concert.  Open seating begins at 1:30p.m. in the library’s fourth floor 46th Star Auditorium.
