Toms River Library Offers Broadway and Classical Music Concerts
To Help You Unwind After the Holidays
TOMS RIVER – Once the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, why not treat yourself to a musical retreat? During the month of January, the Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library will host two very special free musical performances to soothe the soul.
On Wednesday, January 7th at 7:00pm, take a musical journey to the footlights of Broadway as Nina Deutsch performs “Classic Broadway with a Twist.” Ms. Deutsch, an international performer and Juilliard and Yale-trained pianist, will bring to life the music and personalities of great composers such as Gershwin, Kern, Berlin, Rodgers and Porter. Audience participation is encouraged.
The “Classic Broadway with a Twist” program is offered through the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
On Sunday, January 11th at 2:00pm, Piotr Filochowski and Ania Filochowska will perform a classical music concert, “Sibling Strings.” The brother and sister child prodigies have studied under Maestro Itzhak Perlman and performed nationally and internationally, winning numerous scholarships and awards. Since their professional debuts at ages 10 and 11, they have traveled the world, from Afghanistan to Europe and Carnegie Hall. The violinists extraordinaire formerly played for Poland’s National Philharmonic and are currently attending Juilliard. They will visit Ocean County courtesy of Toms River residents, Mr. and Mrs. George Leoniak.
