A piano. A bass. A guitar. That’s all you really need for an afternoon of fun although you might want to include the guys who play the instruments, too. The George Maurer Trio knows how to jazz up a library with a big sound. Take a guided tour through the legacy left by great American jazz musicians while learning how their works have impacted American culture and music.
“Music is an excellent reflection of our history, whether it’s our societal norms or technological advances,” said Anoka County Commissioner Robyn West. “Jazz came about at a time of great transition in our country so this program is certain to be entertaining and educational.”
Live at the Library will feature the George Mauer Trio at Northtown Library, Saturday, December 1st at 2:00 pm. This program is free and open to the public, but seating may be limited.
“Jazz is a uniquely American type of music,” said Library Board Vice President Cathy Montain. “Listen to where the music takes you and learn all about jazz along the way.”
The George Mauer Trio is presented by GL Berg and Anoka County Library in partnership with MELSA (Metropolitan Library Service Agency). This program funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
