ROCK x CPL Partner Event at the Cleveland Public Library

Rock x CPL Free Community Day (at Cleveland Public Library, Main Branch)

Saturday, March 24, 2018 - 12:00pm

Music has the power to bring people together - 

and the Rock Hall, Cleveland Public Library and PNC Bank are working together to host ROCK x CPL, powered by PNC, a free community event that invites families to experience the power of music firsthand at the Cleveland main branch downtown on March 24th, 12 - 4 pm (325 Superior Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114). 

Join us for a free afternoon of music immersion and learning, including live performances in the library's main room, hands on crafts and the Rock Hall EDU team leading interactive programs that introduce fans of all ages to different instruments, societal messages in song and more. Visitors will be able to tell their own stories through music by designing their own album covers and recording music and stories with traveling artist Phatty Banks.

We're telling stories together and invite the Cleveland and surrounding communities to share in the celebration.
