Looking for a family-friendly way to celebrate Oktoberfest? Celebrate the fantastic European tradition of polka at the library on Saturday, October 6, 2018, at 2:00 PM! Bring your kids and grandkids!
Award-winning accordion player Mike Schneider of Pint Size Polkas and the Mike Schneider Band will play popular polka tunes from the 20th century. You’ll learn about the history of polka music, its various styles, plus how the accordion is played via one very special magic trick. A little German lingo will be thrown in for good Oktoberfest measure. Happy Oktoberfest, Oglesby!
This program is supported by a grant from OmniArts.
