The Fairfield Public Library will act as host for Dr. Heather Amlin Hamilton at 3 p.m., Sunday, January 30 as she lectures on the Music of the Renaissance.
The event will take place at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road in the Memorial Room, according to a statement.

"Come and experience a brief overview of different eras along the musical path throughout history. Explore the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and other styles of music in one hour lectures. This interactive journey will include videos, Power Point presentations and audience participation. These short lectures are a great learning environment for all ages and backgrounds. The second part of this series will be hosted on Sunday, February 27 and will feature Baroque music," the statement said.

Hamilton is a free-lance conductor, pianist, organist, and consultant, and has her own music studio in Fairfield where she teaches piano, theory, and history, the statement said.
She is an adjunct professor at the University of Bridgeport and a Graduate Program advisor. She holds her doctorate in educational leadership from UB. As a full-tuition fellow she has two earned master’s degrees from the Manhattan School of Music, one in solo piano performance and the other in orchestral piano performance, the statement said.
