Home Newsroom 135. Barrington Area Library “Second Fridays”

It’s the second Friday of the month, and that means it’s LIVE music night at the Barrington Area Library.  But there’s more than just music tonight.  Before the concert, the library’s current featured artist will be talking about her work and both events are FREE!  The musical feature tonight is the Petra Van Nuis Quartet featuring guitarist, Andy Brown.

Petra van Nuis Quartet at the Barrington Area Library

Petra van Nuis (Paytra van Nouse) is a jazz vocalist inspired by such greats as Peggy Lee, Chris Connor, Lucy Ann Polk, Chet Baker, Billie Holiday, and Beverly Kenney. She’s been a Chicago-based musician since 2004 and will be performing at the library from 8-9:15 tonight with her quartet which includes Andy Brown on guitar, Joe Policastro on bass and Bob Rummage on drums. Van Nuis’ list of musical influences begins with her father, a Dutch classical pianist.  Her professional debut came at age eleven with the Cincinnati Opera Company and by age twelve, she was on the road in her first national tour. You can read more about her background and her style at PetraSings.com.  Petra’s husband, guitarist Andy Brown, accompanies her often and has played professionally for 20 years.

Also at the library tonight, artist Adrienne Janci will discuss the techniques and inspirations behind her series of colorful circus and carnival themed paintings and mixed media installations called “Spectacle”.  Janci was born in Rochester, NY and moved to Barrington, Illinois as a teen.  She studied art at Barrington High School and earned her Fine Arts degree at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  The Adrienne Janci artist’s reception begins at 7PM.

From the Community

“While arts-based interventions and improvisation/enactment exercises are often perceived as therapies for children, Malchiodi has found that expressive arts therapy can benefit a wide range of help seekers. Naturally, children have proven to respond well to movement and creative expression, as they don’t have the language to quantify or qualify their trauma. But, as Malchiodi points out, this intervention can be successful to any individual struggling to talk about their experiences.

Additionally, the person does not have to be adept at the expressive arts. In fact, Malchiodi resists using the word ‘creative’ when helping her clients to express themselves in new ways.”
