The Carnegie Concert Series returns to the Nyack Library on Sun November 1 with the first of four concerts, sponsored by the Friends of the Nyack Library.
The venue is the beautiful Carnegie-Farian Room of the library, a space that dates back to the building’s original construction in 1903. The intimate performance venue features exceptional acoustics in a beautiful room with 18 foot high ceilings and seating for 100.
The first concert of the series features the IRIS String Quartet with Abraham Appleman on violin, Desiree Elsevier on viola, Annamae Goldstein on violin, and Daniel Miller on cello and will take place on Sunday, November 1, 2015 at 2p. Registration is required.
