Four Hands Piano Music Featured in Ackley Theater
On Tuesday, December 16, Marina (Hwang Seok-mi) and Paul Opel are presenting their term's work with a recital of piano four hands music. This is an interesting format for piano music - two people share the keyboard and work together to cover many more notes than either could handle alone. The 45-minute program includes music of Mozart, Mussorgsky, and John Philip Sousa. The concert begins at 8 p.m. in Ackley Theater.
Griswold Library will be open for extended hours through December 17. The schedule is as follows:
Monday - Wednesday: 8 a.m. - 1 a.m.
On Thursday, December 18 and Friday, December 19, the library will be open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
