John Williams Finds His True Voice: A Program with Jeffrey Engel

August 26, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Registrations are closed for this event

Like numerous composers (Korngold, Prokofiev and Shostakovich to name a few), John Williams inhabits the worlds of film and concert music. But, unlike the others who were highly successful in both, Williams has never had the success in concert music that he has had with his film scores. Jeffrey Engel will play excerpts from a variety of William’s works and show how he excels in one type of music and less so in the other.

This is scheduled as an in-person program, but please register in case we need to return to Zoom instead.  Registering also helps with seating set-up.  You can use the link in the listing or call the library at 860-693-5800.  You may also email Beth Van Ness at bvanness@libraryconnection.info to register or to ask questions about the event.  Please join us!
