The Morris County Library is excited to announce the return of adult musical programs for the spring of 2018, with a trio of performances, aided by the christening of the library’s new piano.

The “MCL Concert Series” kicks off on Sunday, March 18, as Keely Schmerber presents an inaugural recital of music by Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, and Chopin.

It continues on Saturday, April 7, with the Synergismus Trio, and concludes on Saturday, May 5, with a joint concert by Sylwia Kloc & The Troubadours and Ereni Sevasti (“Ereni Sevasti Sings Joni Mitchell:  Stepping Out of Blue”).

“We are excited to bring back adult music programs to the county library,’’ said Morris County Library Director Susan Calantone.

“Our purchase of a new baby grand piano will help us to promote cultural literacy and encourage new patrons to discover the treasures within our County Library. We welcome everyone to attend.”
