*Music Series*

Saturday Sessions:

Jazz Standards and American Songbook: Ed Battle

Jazz Standards and American Songbook: Ed Battle
Saturday, October 4, 2-3 p.m.
Central Library, Level 1 Schlessman Hall

Denver's pre-eminent male vocalist has been dazzling nighttime concert goers for decades. And he is making a rare daytime visit to Denver Public Library​ for this concert celebrating classics of Jazz and the American songbook. Appearing by special arrangement, this is a not-to-be-missed concert of a Denver vocal treasure.

No concert on October 11 due to Booklovers Ball.
 

Amelie Trio

Amelie Trio
Saturday, October 18, 2-3 p.m.
Central Library, Level 1 Schlessman Hall

The ubiquitous music of Paris cafés was used to brilliant cinematic effect in the film Amelie. This trio of musicians recreates that wonderful feeling of café society with their concerts; Amelie Trio plays music ranging from Parisian standards and Edith Piaf ballads to gypsy swing and tango. The trio is comprised of Dave Willey (accordion), Maggie Sallee (violin), and Kevin Garry (guitar). This concert will feature chanteuse Britta Laree. Mark your calendars for this ‘don’t miss’ event.

Autumn Guitar with Michael DeLalla

Autumn Guitar with Michael DeLalla
Saturday, October 25, 2-3 p.m.
Central Library, Level 1 Schlessman Hall

It is fitting that Michael DeLalla will be playing us into the cooler months. His cool guitar concert kicked off our 2014 concert season; he is back for an encore performance of his solo guitar compositions and arrangements of traditional tunes gathered from his cultural explorations. Hailed as "one of the very best acoustic guitarists in the world" by All Music Guide, Michael DeLalla blends his jazz, Celtic and folk stylings in a memorable performance.

Knitting for Our Troops (K*4*O*T) Caps Project

Knitting for Our TroopsKeeping Our Soldiers Warm All Over the World!

Fresh City Life is partnering with the Rocky Mountain USO to create knitted items for care packages for our service men and women overseas. It's easy to join the project: just knit a cap or two and deliver them to the Fresh City Life office, in the Central Library (Fresh City Life is located on Level One, west entrance) and we'll bundle them up and deliver them to the Rocky Mountain USO. They'll package the caps with other donated gifts and essentials for our soldiers and send them off.

Dear Knitters,

 

 

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Knitting for Our Troops project. We will continue to collect hats through the end of October 2010. Hats received after that time will be donated to another worthy cause here in Denver (like Urban Peak center for at-risk and homeless youth).
