Here’s a great gift for Father’s Day: a sweet melody. This original composition was performed by Eric Sprague at the OCPL Masterclass Finale. He said it was inspired by his father.

The performance for this song was so well done we thought it was from an opera. During the OCPL Masterclass Finale 2, McCoy gave a short translation, then showed her vocal skills (in Italian).

Cuse’ Got Talent : C is for Czajkowski (or Tchaikovsky)

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015
Lawrence Czajkowski performs his original composition "Electric Fancy" at the Onondaga County Public Library Masterclass finale 2 last night at Lemoyne College.

Lawrence Czajkowski performed his original composition “Electric Fancy” at the Onondaga County Public Library Masterclass “Finale 2” on Monday.  Czajkowski (chy-KAWF-skee ) was the closing act.  The event featured nearly 20 artist performances and was held at Le Moyne College. The third finale will be held tonight.

Thanks to Larry Luttinger for inviting us to this event last night. The OCPL Masterclass sounds like a great way to expose emerging and under represented talent.  We also found out that the Masterclass is a free program. Check out below, as Larry (Luttinger) introduces another Larry (Czajkowski), and reminds us that CNY is also home to some great composers.

The program will be available via video/audio at
