Libraries are often thought of as sacred spaces where the insistent melodies of unanswered cell phones attract frowns. Would we actually invite music into the building, and have it performed mid-afternoon in the center of our reading area?
YES, when the Evergreen String Quartet is in town! On Thursday, July 9 from 2-3 p.m., the quartet will perform a selection of classical and popular music, discuss their instruments, and take questions from the audience, thanks to generous sponsorship by the Newport Library Foundation.
The quartet members, Lucia Atkinson, Emily Cole, Hannah Pressley, and Rose Hashimoto are professional musicians who grew up in the Pacific Northwest.
After the concert, the Library Foundation invites the community to browse through the library and view the many changes made in response to last year’s strategic planning sessions.
