ELIZABETH, NJ — The Elizabeth Public Library will be hosting a virtual fall concert series featuring music from all over the world.
In the past the concerts have been held at the library; however, this year residents can watch on Zoom or Facebook Live and there will also be a telephone number for people without a computer. This will be the 14th year the Library has put on this fall series, utilizing grant money from the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.
“This year we’ve invited back our most popular performers and brought in one new group,” said Ally Blumenfeld, the head of information and adult services at the Elizabeth Public Library. The new group this year will be performing Indian classical music from both the northern and southern regions.
The virtual concerts will be broadcast the second Saturday or Sunday of every month until December. This Saturday, the series begins with Tango Vivo, which will be streaming live from the library auditorium.
After the performances are finished the full sets will be posted to the Library's YouTube page and will be archived on Facebook. To watch each show live on Zoom connect using the Meeting ID: 318 334 3054 and Passcode: 140170 or Call-In at (646) 558-8656.
