AUBURN – The Auburn Public Library’s Centennial Concert will be Nov. 12 at the High Street Congregational Church as a benefit for the library.

Barbara Ring is chairing the fund-raiser, which will include performances by well-known pianist Phil House, along with Ring; tenor Karl Dan Sorensen of Mount Vernon, who was classically trained in the United States and Europe; and “Four on a Match,” a women’s barbershop quartet from the Mollyockett chapter of Sweet Adelines.

The quartet’s members are Rose Fredericks, baritone; Sue Bartlett, bass; Alda Reynolds, lead; and Darlene Glover, tenor.

A special appearance by the cast of “Forever Plaid” who performed at sold-out shows at Community Little Theatre last March is planned. Presenting musical nostalgia from the ’50s from that show will be Dr. Ron Bouffard (Jinx), Dr. Bruce Condit (Sparky), Dr. Paul G. Caron (Frankie) and Harry Neidig (Smudge.) John Neal is pianist for their presentation. Anne Caldwell, also remembered from the theater group’s musicals, will sing accompanied by her pianist-husband, Bob Caldwell.

A series of fund-raising events have been held the past several months for the library, said Tonie Ramsey, chairperson of the Centennial Committee. The library is in the process of expanding its facility in downtown Auburn.

Barbara Randall, John Kelly and Dr. Otis Tibbetts are hosting the evening, which starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door or at the Auburn Public Library at its Auburn Mall location. Refreshments will be served by Eleanor Cummings and Maureen Tibbetts. Cheryl Ring is designing the program and Rachel Morin is doing the publicity.
