Contributed by Richland Library

If you haven’t been able to experience the new, 250-seat auditorium at Richland Library Sandhills, there are three chances this month. Staff are working to showcase local and regional talent on the big stage with some family friendly programming, free of charge.

The auditorium, which features raised seating and a walk-down stage, is the perfect spot to sit back and enjoy these Sandhills September Showstoppers:

• Duo de Vista—3–4:30 p.m., Saturday, September 9—It’s a live concert, featuring the dynamic chamber ensemble of guitarist Marina Alexandra and flutist Teri Forscher-Milter. Duo de Vista engages audiences across the United States with a wide variety of repertoire along with a focus on artistic expression and audience immersion.

• Melody’s Mostly Musical Day— 10–11 a.m., Saturday, September 23— Join pianist Jenny Lin as she tells a tale with music about Melody's Mostly Musical Day. She brings her music to life with accompanying artwork and story. Also, enjoy hearing her music through a remarkable demonstration of Steinway Spirio, the world's finest high-resolution player piano.

• Charlotte Children’s Theater Presents Mr. Popper’s Penguins— 11 a.m.–12 p.m., Saturday, September 30. Mr. Popper spends his time daydreaming of adventures in far-off lands while Mrs. Popper scrimps and saves to put beans on the table. When a spirited penguin arrives on their doorstep, a new horizon (and flock) opens before them! Come along for an unforgettable adventure in this 1930s-inspired musical, based on the classic book.

The 250-seat auditorium is one of many enhanced spaces inside the new Richland Library Sandhills. The state-of-the-art facility, which now stands at 30,000 square feet, was part of a more than $10 million construction project that opened to the public back in February 2017.
