Eli Rosenblatt to perform during fall Art Blast!
Port Angeles Main Library

Art Blast! at the Port Angeles Main Library.

Musician Eli Rosenblatt and his five-piece band will perform a high-energy mix of salsa, swing, and samba at 7pm on Friday, October 9, during the Port Angeles Main Library’s quarterly Art Blast! Rosenblatt is a multi-instrumentalist, performer, producer, and composer based in Seattle, and often plays for kids and families. His music spans the globe, incorporating sounds from Cuba, Eastern Europe, Africa, and beyond. Rosenblatt’s performance will also help celebrate the reopening of the newly-renovated children’s area of the Port Angeles Main Library.

The opening reception for the fall Art in the Library exhibit will be held at 6:30pm, immediately preceding Eli Rosenblatt’s performance. This is a great time to meet the featured artists, view the art, and enjoy light refreshments. The fall Art in the Library exhibit will be on display at the Port Angeles Main Library from October 9 until January 8, 2016.

This free Art in the Library program is generously supported by the Port Angeles Friends of the Library. For more information about the program, contact Main Library Manager Noah Glaude at 360.417.8500, or at .
