“Julia Child” to visit Library

Ms. Julia Child visits the Marple Library on Tuesday, October 17 at 7:00 pm to share the dramatic story of her life. While her public face and voice became familiar to all of us, this play focuses on her private side, especially her relationship with her husband, Paul Child. Our play is a love story! This fascinating and informative  program is free and open to the public. Additional information at 610-623-3607.

 Russian Impressionism

 The Friends of the Marple Library will present  a program on Russian Impressionism on Saturday, October 28 at 2:00 pm. Our guest speaker, Dr. Jim Curtis, will discuss and explain why the international art world is bedazzled by the new wave of Russian artists in Moscow and St Petersburg who are reshaping the very popular style of Impressionism into what is now known as Russian Impressionism.  Seen through the eyes of Russian artists the standard perspective on Impressionism is now more beautiful, beguiling and visually intriguing.  Dr. Curtis will tell us why and how this Russian movement is worth watching and enjoying during his colorful 50  minute PowerPoint presentation. A reception will immediately follow the program so all may meet and discuss the new impressionistic movement with Dr. Curtis.  This program is free and open to the public.  


Chamber Music Concert titled Duet du Jardin

The Friends of the Marple Library will present a program titled Duet du Jardin, a Baroque Chamber Concert featuring Clif Anderson, Bass and Edward Ziegman, Bassoon on Sunday, November 5 at 2:00 pm in the lower level community room.

The program will focus on the genius of Baroque composers and present works by Baroque composers, Georg Telemann, Friedrich Erbach, Joseph B. de Boismortier, and the late Romantic composer Paul Hindemith.  Perhaps no other period in the history of classical music offers the audience a more satisfying experience than the unique joy, and the bubbling optimistic energy of the Baroque period. Perhaps no other two instruments could better present this enjoyable music than a Bass and Bassoon.  This program is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the concert so all may meet the artists.
