Looking for things to do this weekend? The Coronado Public Library has events all weekend long.
Friday, Sept. 17 - Enjoy classical piano music including pieces from Bach, Chopin and Beethoven performed by John Gutheil on Friday at 1 pm. Attend in person or via Facebook Live for this hourlong performance. Gutheil began college as a piano-performance major but decided to pursue a career in medicine. Currently, he is President and CEO of SciQuus Oncology, a company that conducts clinical studies of new cancer treatments. Since 2016, Gutheil has played both locally and internationally and has participated in piano competitions in Seattle, Fort Worth and San Diego.
Saturday, Sept. 18 - Any art curator dreams of uncovering a masterpiece that has been lost to the art world. On Saturday at 2 pm via Zoom, hear how in 2014, Mallory Mortillaro discovered faint markings on a sculpture in a municipal hall in Madison, New Jersey. She will share the story of how a simple art cataloging project evolved into a search for the mysterious piece’s provenance and became one of the biggest art finds in recent history. Register to receive the Zoom link for this event at cplevents.org.
Sunday, Sept. 19 - Coronado Promenade Sunday Concerts might have finished for the summer, but live music on a Sunday has not! Listen to the Left Coast Quintet perform on at 3pm on the Library Lawn. The performance will include movie themes from Hollywood blockbusters and Disney/Pixar favorites, oldies covers, big band, and Broadway favorites. The Left Coast Quintet is a professional ensemble comprised of local San Diego musicians. Use chairs provided by the Library, or bring your favorite blanket or chair, and enjoy an afternoon of musical entertainment.
All events held by the library are free thanks to the support of the Friends of the Coronado Public Library. The library is located at 640 Orange Avenue. For more information, visit cplevents.org.
