The Music Library is out to debunk the myth that libraries are quiet zones where librarians shush patrons. On Friday, October 27, from 6:30 p.m.–8:30 p.m. the Music Library’s performance series Making Noise presents the eclectic sounds of renowned classical guitarist Colin McAllister as he performs a program of Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Latin American music, and a newly commissioned piece “Spines” by composer Christopher Adler.
The program takes its name and inspiration from Alberto Manguel’s book The Library at Night—essays on the idea of the library—and will engage the ear with music and readings of poetry, and the eye with historical vignettes and imagery to illustrate the author’s visions of “The Library as Imagination,” “The Library as Space,” “The Library as Oblivion.”
Come and feast your senses! A reception will be held at 6:30 p.m. followed by the performance at 7:30. This event is underwritten by the UVA Arts Council.
