Free Summer Concert

Thursday August 6 at Dean Park

6:30p.m. to 8:30p.m.

To mark the 100th Anniversary of Dean Park, the Friends of the Library is joining forces with the Shrewsbury Parks and Recreation Department to host a free summer concert for all.

Dan Gabel and The Abletones is an authentic 18-piece Big Band, specializing in the music of the 1930s and 40s. Bandleader Dan Gabel played with the Glenn Miller Orchestra on a world-tour, with the Tommy Dorsey and Hal McIntyre Orchestras, and is considered an expert on the big band era. The band features vocalist Elise Roth, who encapsulates the look and sound of the big band era, dazzling audiences with her vocal precision and pizazz. The Abletones big band sport a vintage look with matching tuxedos, vests and ties, and use period equipment, such as 1930s era mutes and stands. The Worcester Telegram and Gazette has said that "Dan Gabel is the real deal! A band that looks and sounds just like the WWII era."

Pack your elegant (or otherwise) picnic supper and join us on the lawn at Dean Park for a dazzling night!

In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be moved indoors to the Shrewsbury Senior Center at 98 Maple Ave in Shrewsbury.

    Contact: Priya Rathnam   508-841-8531   prathnam@cwmars.org
   

Shrewsbury resident Lyn Lincourt will talk about her research on the mansions of Shrewsbury that culminated in the book Mansions of Magnates. Lyn will have copies of her book that will be on sale. 

Lyn Lincourt has lived in world-changing times in New York and Washington. "In the 1960's in New York, standards were overturned and the world became more demanding. This coincided with ton-sized computers that were gradually replaced by hand-held gizmos." Then she moved to Washington, DC, where she met politics and history. She has been living in Shrewsbury for the past few years.

Her book is about the mansions in Shrewsbury and also encompasses the world, "for these magnates were changing the world, with factories and manufacturing. Computers began a second world-change with the internet and enforced leisure but fewer jobs for the majority. The loss of the middle class. 'Mansions of Magnates' suggests how to approach a solution."

This is a drop-in program.
