What’s in a Concert?
Lecture by Debra Nagy, Artistic Director, Les Delices
Tuesday, September 13 from 12 pm-1:30 pm
Once upon a time, concert-going was a long and (sometimes) rowdy affair complete with food, drink, friends, and perhaps a few tomatoes thrown in for good measure. In this lecture, we’ll consider the roots of concert etiquette in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Lunch will be provided.

Lecture by Jim Lane, Instructor
Thursday, October 13 from 12 pm-1:30 pm
Ever since the dawn of existence, there has been conflict, violence, and warfare. And for just as long, there has been the need for care, nurturing, and humanitarianism. We will discuss two individuals who demonstrated these traits in the 19th century, Henri Dunant and Clara Barton. Lunch will be provided.
