Linda O'Connor

Little did I know, as I was pursuing my master's in piano performance at E.I.U., that I would be using my talents to entertain children in the public schools as well as adults around the piano at the Anvil Club.   It's been 40 enjoyable years of performing at the club, and no two nights have been the same.  I treasure the many friendships I've made since I began playing here. For me, this is more than a restaurant or simply a place to perform, it's a part of my personal repertoire.  I'm excited about the Anvil club's future and the direction it's headed.
