Odyssey performs free concert Aug. 5 at Carmel Valley Library


August’s free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be held at 7 p.m. Aug. 5 in the Library’s community room. It will feature Odyssey, a group of five women and six men who will take you on an eclectic musical journey of familiar songs from Broadway, the ’50s, doo-wop, barbershop, and contemporary pop. They will be accompanied by piano, flute and bass guitar.

The program will last 45 minutes.

Odyssey began nearly 10 years ago when Brian Castle and a few friends got together in his Carmel Valley living room and decided to prepare a summer concert for their friends and families. The group continues to do this every year. Members include an accountant, engineer, speech pathologist, photographer, teacher, lawyer, librarian, salesman, and some computer experts.

The singers are Nancy Noel, Julie Eisenhauer, Patty Carlisle, Renee Christensen, Terry Eisenhauer, Bill Isaacs, Brian Castle, Henrik Jonson, Herb Hein, Paul Findley, and RC Brooks. The accompanists are pianist Tessa Heunis, flutist Susan Spoto, and bass guitarist Steve Schisler.

The library is at 3919 Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley. Call 858-552-1668.
