Close Encounters With Music at Peabody Library
[The following was submitted by the Peabody Institute Library.]
The Peabody Institute Library is pleased to announce Close Encounters with Music, a five-part series that combines lecture and performance to explore the wonderful world of classical music. The second event in this series will be held on Monday, Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Main Library, located at 82 Main St. in Peabody.
Virtuoso harpist, Barbara Poeschl-Edrich, will present “Harps Modern and Tall, Ancient and Small,” a guided tour of the harp combined with delightful music. Barbara will entwine the fascinating story of the harp with examples of different instruments.
A series of five evening lecture/performances presented by Music at Eden’s Edge, the Close Encounters with Music Series combines traditional live classical music performances with interactive dialog among performers and listeners, providing an enlightening and participatory experience for the seasoned concertgoer that also offers a unique music experience to newcomers to chamber music. Performers reflect on the history of their instruments, cultural context of music performed, literary and artistic cross-discipline connections, and even their own personal insights into the music they perform.
