From the Grand Marais Public Library - January 29, 2024

The Grand Marais Public Library is excited to host four musicians from the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra (DSSO) for an evening of music, entitled “Love through Music,” on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2024 from 6:00-7:30 PM. 

The DSSO is sending four fantastic musicians to play a variety of classical music composed as early as the Baroque to as late as the Modern era, with composers ranging from Handel to Piazzolla. Since these musicians will be performing on Valentine’s Day, they will prepare one set of music specific to the holiday of love.  

The performers are flutist Melanie Sever, violinist Jean Leibfried, trumpeter Charlie Leibfried, and hornist Deborah Rausch. They will explain how their instruments work and what their roles are in both classical and modern music. The musicians, additionally, will familiarize the audience with the composers and introduce some tidbits of music history. They also plan to explain how their instruments function as well as bring and play examples of instruments similar to their own.

This event is free and for all ages, but is best suited for ages 10 and up. Seating will begin at 5:30, so come early to find the closest seats. Non-alcoholic drinks with lids are welcome, as always. This event takes place during library operating hours, so our clerks will be on hand to check books out to patrons during and after the performance.

In other news, the library is continuing its Winter Reading Program in addition to its Friday Night Reels film screenings. For more information about these ongoing programs, call the library at 218-387-1140 or visit our website today:
