“Music in the Library” Returns October 26 to the Marshall Public Library

Gabriel Lowman

The sounds of jazz will be bouncing off the bookcases at the Marshall Public Library. 


Saturday, October 26 from 2 to 3 p.m., pianist Gabriel Lowman will be performing on the first floor of the library. His setlist will include jazz classics “Stella by Starlight,” “Just Friends,” and “On the Sunny Side of the Street.” He will also perform one of his own works, “Lost Cosmonaut,” a musical ode to floating in space, as well as asking children in the audience for suggestions for improvisational pieces.  


“I like performing in unorthodox venues away from recital halls and restaurants because it takes away the bells and whistles that musicians often use to elevate themselves above the listener,” said Lowman. “It's really enjoyable for me to perform in a situation that blurs the lines between performance and simply spending time with people. I like the library because it's a place where things are truly accessible and free to the public. Hopefully, by eliminating the barriers of pricing and ‘too-late-on-a-school-nightedness,’ the music will be more accessible to those who would have otherwise not had an opportunity to hear it.”


Gabriel is currently studying piano performance at Idaho State University and plans to pursue a Masters and Ph.D. with his goal to teach music at the university level. He loves classical music, alongside jazz, and especially loves pop music. He also works as a Library Page for the Marshall Public Library. 


“We're excited for the return of Music in the Library, a program that patrons and staff alike enjoy,” said Amy Campbell, Marshall Public Library Public Services Supervisor. “The program brings a live music performance into the library’s environment as people read, browse, and go about their regular Saturday library activities. We’re looking forward to highlighting one of our very talented staff members and encourage everyone to come and enjoy Gabriel’s performance.”
