Classical Guitarist Peter Fletcher

In continuing celebration of 50 years of service to Clear Lake, Freeman Branch Library is pleased to welcome back New-York based classical guitarist Peter Fletcher, who  will return for another free performance on Monday, March 10th, at 7:00 PM.

This is a free concert open to the public.  This is not a ticketed event, but seating is limited.
 
Mr. Fletcher will also be performing at the Evelyn Meador Branch Library on Tuesday, March 11th, at 7:00 PM.  That event is ticketed, so please call or visit ahead of time.
