The West Caldwell Public Library, 30 Clinton Road, will present a Classical Piano Recital featuring 15 year-old musical prodigy John Franek on Thursday, July 12 at 7:00 pm in the Community Room.
The program will include original classical compositions such as “Rondo No. 1 in C minor,” “Etude No. 1 (the Ocean Current Etude) and “Solo for Keyboard.” A series of improvisational pieces will also be performed.
Franek will be a junior at James Caldwell High School in the fall. He has been playing piano for three and a half years and studied with Janet Hein of North Caldwell. He composes music as well, which is his primary interest, and has been studying composition for one year.
This program is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required. For more information or to sign-up, call the Library at (973) 226-5441. A reception will follow the piano recital.
