Chamber music, fairy tale at township library
Several Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival events will take place at the Bloomfield Township Public Library in June, along with a performance of the classic fairy tale “The Little Red Riding Hood.”
The Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays, June 12, 14, 19 and 21 at the library, at 11 a.m. through Artistic Encounters.
The Catherine Filene Shouse Chamber Music Institute, led by violist Philip Setzer of the Emerson String Quartet, provides a platform for emerging professional ensembles. Artistic Encounters are public coachings for Shouse Institute fellows in a setting similar to a master class. Artistic Encounters provides a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a professional musician. The public coaching sessions of professional musicians, which are sponsored by Paul and Barbara Goodman, are intended for an adult audience. They are open and free of charge.
On Saturday, June 17, at 11 a.m., the classic family fairy tale “The Little Red Riding Hood” will be shared in a performance through music. The whole family will be captivated by the whimsical and evocative sounds of the instruments as they journey through the beloved story performed by Hesper Quartet. The performance is sponsored by Gwen and S. Evan Weiner and is free. All ages are welcome.
All performances require prior registration. For more information, call the library at 248.642.5800or visit the website at www.blankbtpl.org.
