Don Davenport Memorial Music Series

Fall 2018

We at the library recently lost our beloved friend, colleague, mentor, and Board President, Don Davenport. He was a man of many talents and interests, and one of his greatest passions was music. Don had been a clarinetist in the University of Michigan Marching Band and the Belle Valley Band and Michiwinds Chamber group. In Don's memory we will be hosting a music performance series showcasing area musicians, including Halla and Madison Hilborn on the violin and viola; singer, songwriter, and guitarist Cal Whitmore; and the Michiwinds Chamber Ensemble. Please stop by to enjoy the beautiful music and share memories of Don.

September 29, 1:00 - 2:00 pm      The Hilborns: Violin & Viola
October 20, 1:00 - 2:30 pm           Cal Whitmore: Guitar
November 28, 6:00 - 7:30 pm       Michiwinds Chamber Ensemble: Flute & Clarinets
