Take a break and enjoy live music at the Royal Oak Public Library! Join us in the Friends Auditorium on select Saturdays at 3:00 pm throughout the year for these free performances. This series is sponsored by Friends of the Royal Oak Public Library.
Comprised of local musicians, the WCM was organized to present chamber music concerts to diverse communities along the Woodward Corridor, from downtown Detroit, through the connecting suburbs, to Pontiac. The group’s mission is to create a musical environment in which urban and suburban communities will enjoy coming together. A clarinet quartet and a flute ensemble will perform classical chamber music.
Backed by seven-string guitarist Rick Matle and drummer Karen Tomalis, seven-time “Outstanding Jazz Vocalist” winner, Detroit native Sheila Landis interprets the classic repertoire of Ella Fitzgerald. Sheila Landis has a voice steeped in jazz that is guaranteed to entertain. If you love jazz standards including the timeless melodies of Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Duke Ellington, this show is not to be missed. This activity is funded in part by the Michigan Council for Arts and Culture, and the Michigan Humanities Council.
