As the world’s oldest pianist and Holocaust survivor, 109 year-old Alice Herz Sommer kept her striking optimism throughout her long and challenging life, as well as her love for music. The Academy-award winning short film about her experiences, The Lady In Number 6: Music Saved My Life, was widely hailed as one of the year’s most uplifting and inspiring stories. The Essex Library, in conjunction with Essex Meadows, is proud to present a free screening of this wonderful film hosted by Ms. Mihae Lee. Lee, who is a world-renowned pianist and Artistic Director of the Essex Winter Series, will play some pieces by Chopin for the audience as well. Please plan to attend this special afternoon of music and film at Essex Meadows’ Hamilton Hall Auditorium, Monday June 16th at 3:30 p.m.. The program is free and open to all; Essex Meadows is at 30 Bokum Road in Essex.
