Music in the Air featuring Jacopo Giacopuzzi & Adult Summer Reading Kick-off

Saturday, Jun. 3 | 2–3pm
Chelsea District Library | Reading Garden

Join us for our inaugural Music in the Air concert featuring international classical pianist Jacopo Giacopuzzi. There will be seating for classical music aficionados who want an upclose view of piano mastery as well as space on the grass to spread out a blanket and kick back surrounding yourself in Jacopo’s lush artistry. There will be plenty of room for an impromptu pirouette if the music – and spirit moves you!

Adult Services staff will also be on site to help you sign up for our 2017 Adult Summer Reading Bingo!
