Another chance is coming up to just sit back and listen or, if so moved, to dance and swing at the Fremont Main Library. Gus Wedermeyer’s 3 O’Clock Jump Big Band performs in the Fukaya Room 2-4 p.m. Saturday, November 10.
Recent musical offerings at Fremont Main featured the local Indian band Jhankar Live on Saturday, October 13. The Fukaya Room was filled to capacity and still a crowd of people waited outside to be admitted. Audience members could not resist dancing to the upbeat music of the group.
The following Saturday, students from Fremont’s Anna Poklewski Academy of Music treated the community to an afternoon of classical music. Again, every available seat in the room was taken. Piano and voice talents regaled concert goers with selections including those by Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Bussoni and Liszt. The star of the show was award-winning international concert pianist Howard Na, a student of Anna Poklewski.
More music programs are lined up for the coming months at the Fremont Main Library. All performances are free. Stay tuned.
