Something new, something unusual, perhaps something glamorous; all highlighting the lowly, nutritious carrot. Tell us where you found the recipe, if it was hard and if it tastes good. You may send your recipe to Sandy at sandyw@libraryconnection.info and I will share all the recipes with the group.  Please register by email to Sandy or by phone so that we can notify you how to join us.

Winter Pops Concert featuring Caryn Lin
Event Location: online
Contact: Mary   860-644-1541
metter@libraryconnection.info
Caryn Lin bills herself as an electronic violinist and wows with her fascinating multi-media concert. She transforms sound using her five-string violin and modern technology. She will use original music and, through looping and other techniques, will produce a unique musical landscape. Looping is on-the-spot recording; as Caryn plays the violin, the recorded snippets play back in a continuous loop, adding layers of sound. “The resulting music is both otherworldly and totally catchy.” (from Caryn’s website) Caryn has played in Lincoln Center, the Crayola Crayon Factory, the Kimmel Center, and in a monastery in the French Alps. She also plays in schools to introduce students to the “Science of Sound.” If you wish to join us for an evening of unique music, please register at 860-644-1541 or by email to refswpl@libraryconnection.info. You will receive the ZOOM link by return email. You may join us by phone if you prefer; ask us how!
