Even if you didn't know Clarice Wilson (music specialist at the Library from 1974-1999) the annual concerts held in her memory are worth attending. Mrs. Wilson supported gifted young artists at the beginning of their careers and this year's performance continues in that spirit by featuring a very talented young pianist, Brian Lam. A native of Hong Kong, Fung Yuen (Brian) Lam started playing the piano at age four. He is presently a scholarship piano performance major at Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music, City University of New York, where he studies with Adam Kent. In 2006, he became the youngest prize winner at the 58th Hong Kong Schools Music Festival, performing works by J.S. Bach.
We invite you to join us on Sunday, April 21 at 2:00 p.m. for the concert, followed by a reception. Donations to the Clarice Wilson Memorial Fund of White Plains Library Foundation are always welcome and will be used to enhance the Library's music programming and collections. Please see the Foundation's page for more details on contributing.
