Classical guitar ROCKS
Peter Szog perfromed for more than 50 people despite following a snowstorm that closed the library proper for the two previous days! For the October installment in the 2009-2010 run of Parker Library's Live Local Music Series, we featured classical guitarist Szog at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30, in the auditorium at Parker Mainstreet Center. Good show. Check out more video on youtube. Thanks from Jeanie!
