Entertainment and more food will be available along Putnam Pike and face painting, plus pony rides and rabbit displays will keep the kiddos busy. Rhode Island folk duo, Atwater-Donnelly, will perform live music, too. The scarecrows will remain up for viewing until November 3.

Lecture Recital: Invitation to Bach and Ysaye, Season Five @ East Providence Public Library | East Providence | Rhode Island | United States

Violinist Joshua Peckins returns to Weaver Library with a new program featuring solo violin music by Bach and Ysaye.

This season pairs Bach’s D minor Partita (which includes the legendary Ciaccona) and Ysaye’s Fifth Solo Sonata – two of the most virtuosic and expressive works ever written for the violin. Their compositions spanning over 200 years, these masterworks showcase the violin’s hugely diverse musical and technical potential.

An award-winning concert violinist, Peckins captures audiences’ attention with inspiring and educational stories about the music he performs.
