The library staff acknowledges, with sadness, the passing of Mike Brodrick (1942- 2017), who established the Mike Brodrick Library Acquisitions Fund in 2005. His generosity continues to provide NWC students with high quality academic resources every year.
|Sampling the Symphony, Saturday, March 25, 4-5 pm in the library's amphitheater. Admission is free. Refreshments served. |
Violins and violas and cellos, oh my! OK, there’ll be two violins and only one viola and one cello, but they’re going to join forces to present a concert on Saturday, March 25th. Members of the Billings Symphony string section will be performing @TheLibrary from 4-5 pm, thanks to a generous donation by Marilyn Grams, a Billings Symphony patron. They’ll be doing well known, fun-to-listen-to string quartet pieces, including “Let There be Peace on Earth,” right in the library’s amphitheater. One of the players will be our own Maurine Akin, NWC string instructor and conductor of the NWC Community Orchestra! You won’t just be sampling string quartet literature, though, there will be appetizers, too. Hey, it pays to hang around those symphony types. As always, children are welcome... they can sit in the front and actually see how the musicians make sound on their instruments, and probably even ask questions. (If nobody’s conducting, who’s running the show? What’s the loudest you can play? Where are the trumpets? What’s the highest note you can play... the list goes on.) It’s just another cool event @TheLibrary.

Often while reading a book one feels that the author would have preferred to paint rather than write; one can sense the pleasure he derives from describing a landscape or a person, as if he were painting what he is saying, because deep in his heart he would have preferred to use brushes and colors. --Pablo Picasso (Quoteland.com)
