Music talks in Little Egg Harbor

What Is It: Paul Mack Somers of the Bay-Atlantic Symphony, a music journalist and composer, has an ongoing series of lectures addressing some of the concepts behind classical music. He speaks today at the Ocean County Library's Little Egg Harbor Township branch and Tuesday at the Ocean City Library on "Folk Literature in Composed Music."

What To Expect: Somers' programs include him speaking on his topic and then going to the tape -‚ÄČor some sort of recording - to play music that illustrates his points. Plus, he leaves plenty of time for audience questions. His folk-tales talk includes "epics, sagas, fairy tales, legends and folk heroes," Somers says.

Event Info: The lecture starts 1 p.m. today at the Ocean County Library, 290 Mathistown Road., Little Egg Harbor Township. The Ocean City talk is 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, also at the local library, 1735 Simpson Ave. For more details, see
