9. Flamenco Date Night

Home Newsroom 9. Flamenco Date Night

I’m only nine days in to “365 Things to do in and Around Barrington,” and I’m discovering that the Barrington Area Library is quite the hub of social activity. By day, books take the spotlight. But on a night like tonight, it’s a great place to take in a little bit of the local vibe.

Joe RosenbloomThere’s a double feature happening at the library tonight.  The first is an opportunity to meet the artists behind the library’s latest exhibit in honor of Autism Awareness Month, “Expressions through Art.” They’re featuring the work of autistic artist, Joe Rosenbloom and photos of autistic children taken by Barrington photographer, Thomas Balsamo.  The Gallery reception starts at 7 and goes until 9PM.

And there’ll be live music in the library’s meeting room at the same time.  From 8 until 9:15PM, Flamenco guitarist, Mehran, will peform songs from his album, Angels of Persepolis, which was just released in February, 2010.  Mehran is also a teacher at Chicago’s Old Town School of Music.  Barrington High School Alumni, Joseph Franco and Eduardo Mandujano will be opening for Mehran tonight.  They spent the past semester at the prestigious Carmen de las Cuevas Flamenco School in Granada, Spain.

So now you know this is one library that’s about so much more than just the books.  They’re totally tuned into technology, actively posting on both Facebook and Twitter.  In fact, the library is the most active Barrington presence I’ve found so far on Twitter!  I’ll be sure to keep you posted on this website about all the cool stuff in the works at the Barrington Area Library and we look forward to getting to know these neighbors better in our quest to find and share “365 Things Barrington”.

For more information about tonight’s activities, contact the Barrington Area Public Library at 847-382-1300 or visit their website at BarringtonAreaLibrary.org.
