LWC Announces 2008 Arts & Lectures series schedule

By Duane Bonifer, LWC Director of Public Affairs
Civil rights, Lincoln and classical music are the major themes of the fall season of the Lindsey Wilson College Arts & Lecture Series.
The fall edition of the annual series offers a wide variety of speakers, writers, activists and musicians - many of which reflect the struggle for civil rights in the United States. The theme of this year's series is "conviction, commitment, social justice and the arts."
"With the 40th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King Jr. juxtaposed with the celebration of the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth, we wanted to take this unique opportunity to expose our students and the community to individuals and organizations that have been dedicated to protecting and advancing civil rights," said LWC Library Director Phil Hanna, who is also chair of the arts and lecture series.
Two fall events celebrate the life Lincoln: a talk about Lincoln and fellow Kentucky native Henry Clay, and an election-eve concert based on Lincoln's words. (Lincoln was born on Feb. 12, 1809, less than 40 minutes from the Lindsey Wilson campus.)
"It's become a tradition every four years for our choral programs to hold an election-eve concert that celebrates our democratic process," said Associate Professor of Music and Director of Choral Programs Gerald L. Chafin. "We are pleased to be able to do that once again."
The fall season gets under way on Sept. 19 with a recital by international award-winning classical guitarist Petar Jankovic. The recital will be at 7 p.m. CT in W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall.
Hanna, who has worked on the series for more than a decade, said ideas for speakers and performers originate from many sources: articles in professional journals; student suggestions; and personal connections."Although many of our programs are student-centered, all of our events are open to the community," Hanna said. "And we are pleased that we can continue to offer these culturally enriching opportunities to members of the community."
All of this fall's events are free and open to the public as part of the college's mission to provide cultural events to the region.
