The Neligh Public Library invites the public to a free concert on Thursday night, featuring familiar tunes with a tropical twist.
Joey Gulizia will perform music at 7 p.m. in the library using a steel drum, electronic woodwinds and various percussion instruments.
An Omaha native, Gulizia has played music professionally since he was 10 years old. He has worked for the Nebraska Arts Council as an artist-in-schools from 1979 to the present.
In 1996, Gulizia received the Governor's Arts Award for excellence in education. He has performed on many cruise ships and traveled extensively. His music can be heard on jingles for TV and radio and for many CDs.
Library director Jennifer Norton said this program is being brought to the library by a special partnership between the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Library Commission and a number of NAC roster artists who have generously offered to volunteer their services.
"Libraries in communities directly impacted by this spring’s floods are eligible for one free artist program from May through July 31," Norton said. "This program is entirely free of charge to local libraries."
