Cayman’s music lovers need not worry that the arrival of summer will lead to a drought of live music events.

The Cayman Arts Festival is planning to continue its Music at the Library series throughout the coming months, featuring some of Cayman’s best young musicians. The next instalment will be on Thursday, 25 July.

Launched in Sept. 2018, Music at the Library has become a resounding success with a dedicated and loyal following. This is thanks to the commitment of talented local performers grateful for the opportunity to showcase their craft to an appreciative audience.

To date, more than 400 people have attended the performances, which have ranged from classical and jazz instrumental pieces to vocal arrangements of modern-day hits, with a sprinkling of poetry and spoken word thrown in for good measure.

Hosted in the historic section of the George Town Public Library, the so-called ‘rush hour concerts’ are usually held on the last Thursday of each month at 6‑7pm, and tickets are limited to 75 people.

Despite its title, Music at the Library often branches into poetry and spoken word performances by such artists as Camille Angel, seen here at a previous event.

The next event will feature Christopher Scott (piano), Joseph Welcome (harmonica), Nayil Arana (violin), Beneil Miller (piano), Liz Malkin (flute), Joe Millson (tuba), Heidi Ordaz-Nyack (piano) and Sophie McKenzie (poetry). The audience can expect to be entertained by works from Leonard Cohen, Lord Kitchener, Ian Clarke, Henri Kling, Camille Saint-Saens and Georges Hue.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets can be bought at the door or in advance by calling 922‑5550 or emailing: [email protected] Advance reservations are recommended due to the ticket limit.
