"It could be really fun and a lot different from the sit and fold your hands and listen to someone play for two hours," he said. "It's really supposed to be engaging for the audience."
In the time before the performance, Hartnett has his work cut out for him.
"I've got some work to do to sort of dust off the memory banks," laughed Hartnett. "But, it will be fun and I'm flattered to be asked."
The event will be held in the museum's ballroom, and those interested in attending should call the museum at 846-7336 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Admission is $5.
"The acoustics up in the ballroom are just wonderful," said Palmer. "It's a great place to hear music."
"I commend Amanda and the museum for basically expanding the programming there," Hartnett said. "I think it's a great way to draw people in and then find out there's this wonderful museum there."
