CLASSICAL GUITARIST PETER FLETCHER

Classical guitarist Peter Fletcher will be presenting a concert at the Library on Wednesday, October 15 at 7 pm.

Fletcher spends seven months a year on the road where he often gives as many as four recitals a week.  Each concert features a major Bach piece, a Spanish piece, and a work that he has transcribed for the guitar.  He also includes a new commissioned work so to always offer something fresh to the audience.

Fletcher’s recordings include The Art of Classical Guitar, A Peter Fletcher Recital, Federico Mompou: Guitar Works, Peter Fletcher plays Erik Satie, Peter Fletcher Plays Baroque Music for Guitar and the newly released Edvard Grieg.    All have received critical acclaim.

This program is free and open to the public.

THE STORY OF THE ORPHAN TRAIN

Come learn The Story of the Orphan Train, as told in theatrical performance by Pippa White, on Monday, September 29 at 7 pm.  More than 250,000 homeless children were saved from the streets of large eastern cities and sent, via a train, to live on farms or in communities in the Midwest. Pippa will portray the joy and some of the sorrows of these young people.  The program has been very highly recommended by previous attendees.

The Orphan Train program is being sponsored by the FOL and they will be holding their annual meeting at 6:30 tonight, just before the program.  Both are open to the public.
