Timothy Wright will perform on March 5. For the past 4 decades, Timothy Wright has been “honing his craft” of playing live and recorded music in the Indiana band, The Wright Brothers.  When the band decided to “get off the road,” Timothy began his solo music career, performing at local restaurants around the Indianapolis area and in Nashville, TN.

 Singing and playing acoustic guitar, his greatest influence has been James Taylor.  “I enjoy J.T.’s songwriting and finger picking guitar style” more than any other songwriter, Wright says.

Cellist Sara Wollan and Harpist Andrea Stern will be performing together on our Skanta stage on May 14. Sara Wollan is from West Lafayette and ventured out at the age of 16 to study in Paris with Andre Navarra. At 19 she returned to Indiana University Music School. Wollan performed abroad for years before returning to her hometown where she presently teaches a full studio of private students.

Andrea Stern is a harpist whose first inspiration to play the harp was from Harpo Marx of the Marx Brothers. She studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music and New England Conservatory. Stern has won several solo competitions, including a concerto competition in Venezuela where she was principal Harpist with the Orquesta Sinfónica de Maracaibots. She plays concerts frequently, and we are so excited to have Sara Wollan and Andrea Stern together at the Frankfort Library in May.

Clare Longendyke can be seen on June 4th and is an award-winning pianist whose dazzling musicianship and colorful interpretations delight audiences wherever she performs. Recognized for the expressive energy and originality she brings to new and traditional repertoire, the effervescent soloist and chamber musician won four national competitions and was a finalist in several others during the past decade.

Gordon Bonham’s concert will be on Saturday, July 9th. He brings together a mix of styles from the Mississippi Delta to the back alleys of Chicago, from big Texas shuffles to jumpin’ West Coast swing. After several years of tearing up the road, Bonham brings it all together in Indiana, the Crossroads of America.

Season tickets are $40 for all four concerts and are available for purchase up until the March 5th concert. Individual tickets are $12 each and may be purchased with cash, check, or credit card. We appreciate your support of the arts and we look forward to seeing you back in our theatre for some great music!  If you have questions, please contact Susie at susie@myfcpl.org or call the library at 765-654-8746.
