Get a sneak peak inside the new Claverack Library building! The new Claverack Library will be the venue for An early evening for traffic noise, random phrases, partygoers, and drums, a performance conducted by Bobby Previte on Saturday evening, July 9.
Bobby Previte, Guggenheim fellow, legendary drummer and critically acclaimed composer, has created an original piece for the Claverack Library to be performed only once. It will be broadcast live on WGXC 90.7 FM.
This event will feature audience participation of all ages. You don’t need to play an instrument to garner your 15 minutes of fame, but you do need to bring your reading glasses! Also participating in this benefit event will be the Old Klaverack Brewery, offering tastes of their craft beers. There will be soft drinks and snacks for all.
The building will open for tours and refreshments at 5:30. There will be a short rehearsal at 6:00 for the performance to be broadcast at 6:30. Tickets are $10. In case fame, an original work by Bobby Previte, exciting architecture, local food and drink, and the opportunity to contribute to the library are not enough for you, everyone in attendance will be given a book to take home.
This is the first among many concerts planned for the new library, presently undergoing renovation. Curious members of the community can get their first glimpse inside the former A. B. Shaw Firehouse, re-purposed to create a 21st century library and community center.
Parking is behind the current library at 629 Route 23B
