Marimba music on tap at the deAngeli Branch Library

LAPEER — The Lapeer District Library’s Marguerite deAngeli Branch (921 W. Nepessing St.) will host marimba player Paul Demick on Monday, June 25 at 6 p.m.

As a 10-year-old boy who was eager to play in the school band, Demick decided to play the clarinet. Unfortunately, he became very frustrated and fell behind the other students. Thankfully, his musical career didn’t end there. Because of the wisdom of his mother, Demick was allowed to switch from clarinet to percussion, and eventually received a scholarship to Wayne State University in music.

While playing beautiful music from the greatest classical composers, Demick will share his musical journey, as well as interesting facts about the composers and their compositions. Furthermore, he educates his listeners on his wonderful instrument, the marimba.

This program is funded by the Friends of the Marguerite deAngeli Library.

Call the deAngeli Branch Library at 810-664-6971 to register or for additional information about this program. To learn more about the Lapeer District Library, to see what other programs are available, or to register online visit www.library.lapeer.org
