Mozart for Mother's Day Concert at Downtown Library
"M" is for "Mother" and "the million things she gave me," but "M" can also stand for "Mozart."
But on Sunday, May 8, 2011 at the Downtown Library, 300 Park Avenue, the letter “m” will mean “masterpiece” when master pianist Wayne McEvilly presents “Mozart for Mother’s Day,” a free concert. The music begins at 2:00p.m. The program will be held in the library’s fourth floor 46th Star Auditorium and is suitable for all ages.
McEvilly’s partnership with the classics of the piano repertoire has been a favorite of MLS library listeners since his move from California to Oklahoma City in 2004. This will be his 7th annual Mozart For Mothers Day concert at the Downtown Library.
This concert McEvilly says “is part of my work to offer performances of Mozart, and other great composers, to everyone, all ages, no exclusions.”
A previous “Mozart for Mother’s Day” concert at the Downtown Library attracted an audience from 1 to 101 years of age, enthusiastic teens, children with their families, working men and women, seniors and professionals. “In a word,” McEvilly said, “everyone.”
