02. August 2010 · Comments Off on Anna Karenina Events @ The Library · Categories: Opera

The main library, Dr. MLK Junior, will be having some events in August that you might want to check out. The opera, Anna Karenina, by David Carlson, will be new to most, and often it helps to learn about the work, and here some of the music. I don’t know if they’ll be singing for us, but I do know that some of the performers will be at one event, as will the composer.

Here’s the information:

August 3 – August 30
All Library Open Hours
2nd Floor exhibit area

OSJ patrons and members of the public are invited to visit a gallery exhibit featuring composer David Carlson’s personal collection of orchestral manuscripts. Visitors will have the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process of the making of a modern American opera with a rare glimpse at musical composition artifacts, costume and set design renderings and still photos.
