August 2015 Concerts and Thank-yous

2015concert-ziliSaturday August 15th was sunny and hot, and the ladies of Zili Misik cranked up the heat with their world rhythms!  Thank you, Ladies, for a wonderful performance!  Thanks also to Tommey Seggers of Artists-at-Large for our photo pictured here.  Earlier that day the Friends’ Children’s Books mini-sale finished its second day of sales, netting nearly $500 for upcoming programs at the Hyde Park library!  Thank you, Book Lovers!


The Friends’ Concert in the Garden Series has been playing every summer for 10 years, and we couldn’t let this milestone pass without notice!  Just before the last show on August 20th, we cut and shared a celebratory cake with the audience. A big thank-you to the baker at Shaws in Hyde Park for your impromptu musical decoration!


Hyde Park’s favorite crooner Tony Cibotti concluded our 2015 Concerts in the Garden series with another terrific show of Sinatra and company favorites.  Annually, Tony generously donates his talents at every appearance at the library, and this year he brought back up!  His wife and two ladies associated with the Pied Pipers provided some harmonious accompaniment.  Thank you, All, for a great time!

The Friends of the Hyde Park Branch Library are grateful for the grant by the Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation for this year’s concert series, and encourage our audience and Friends members to thank the Blue Hills Bank for its support of our library and community.
