The Cody and Powell Libraries are partnering with the Wyoming Arts Council to host two classical music concerts on Saturday, April 30th. The Powell Library will host their program at 11:00 a.m. in the meeting room. The Cody Library has partnered with the Cody Senior Center to host their program at the Senior Center, 613 16th Street, at 2:00 p.m. The concerts, provided by the Piatigorsky Foundation, will feature nationally renowned cellist Evan Drachman with a live piano accompaniment by Audrey Vardanega.
Since 1990, The Piatigorsky Foundation has presented more than 3,775 performances, introducing the joy of live classical music in communities throughout the country. Their musicians are chosen for their artistry and ability to engage audiences through lively discussion. In performances that are both entertaining and informative, the artists share anecdotes and insights into the works they will perform.
The Wyoming Arts Council works in partnership with the Piatigorsky Foundation to book two tours in Wyoming each year with eight different stops throughout the state. The Cody and Powell Libraries are happy to be selected as stops for 2022.
Both events are free and open to the public.
