DVORAK COMES TO AMERICA WITH MUSIC HISTORIAN JEFFREY ENGEL

Dvorak was the first major European composer to take up residence in America. For nearly three years he was the director of the National Conservatory in New York City. Outside of his teaching duties he still found time to compose some of his finest music. On Monday, November 6 at 1:30 p.m. at the Essex Library, Jeffrey Engel will detail Dvorak’s time in America and play excerpts from some of his American works.

Jeffrey Engel, adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut in Torrington, is a music historian and orchestral cellist who trained in Paris and Austria before returning to the U.S. to teach. He was selected as one of the 50 most influential people in Litchfield County, Connecticut by Litchfield Magazine in 2010. 

This event is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, please call the Library at (860) 767-1560. The Essex library is located at 33 West Ave. in Essex.
