Rockford Public Library to host “Music Makes the World Go Around”
Musician and storyteller Diane Michaels to perform at RPL family program
On Saturday, February 24th, the Rockford Public Library will welcome Diane Michaels and her exciting program, “Music Makes the World Go Around” at the Main Library. This program will explore world cultures through music and storytelling and features a collection of musical instruments from all over the world. It will be jam-packed with exotic sights and sounds and will take place at 11:00 a.m. in the Main Auditorium of Rockford Public Library, 215 N. Wyman Street.
"We want to provide programs to the community that are interesting, entertaining and fun,” said Frank Novak, Executive Director of Rockford Public Library. “Our Black History Month programs have revolved around African Americans in the arts so this program is very complimentary in that it highlights music and stories from cultures around the world.”
Rockford Public Library provides on average over 300 programs per quarter to the Rockford community ranging from children’s performers to “how-to” classes for adults. Most programs are free and open to the public.
