Music and More from the Land Down Under

Saturday, July 20, 2019

Join us in the Great Hall for a didgeridoo performance... and more!

Join us for a free concert, right in the middle of the library!

Musician William Thoren of Didgeridoo Down Under will take you on a musical journey to Australia and beyond, as he plays an assortment of didgeridoos and percussion instruments. You'll be hearing a modern style, mixing fast-paced rhythms with relaxing soundscapes and organic sound effects.

This program is best for adults, but OK for kids with parental accompaniment.
