19-Part Cultural Affairs Series Kicks Off With Sept. 13 Talk

Posted on Wednesday, August 17, 2011 [12:40 PM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- A talk about trust and the U.S. financial system will kick off this year's Lindsey Wilson College Cultural Affairs Series.

Stuart Diamond, a Woodrow Wilson Foundation Fellow, will talk about "Trust and the Financial System" at 7 p.m. CT on Tuesday, Sept. 13. His talk, which will be held in the W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall, is free and open to the public.

The Sept. 13 talk kicks of a 19-part series that includes recitals, plays, performances and talks by well-known Kentucky authors.

All of the 19 performances are open to the public, and almost all are free.

"We are please to bring the citizens of Southcentral Kentucky this many live performances over the next eight months," said Phil Hanna, LWC director of library services and cultural affairs chair. "There is a great deal of breadth and depth in this year's programming, and we look forward to an exciting cultural affairs season"

In addition to several talks about current events, this year's season includes two performances by several Lindsey Wilson artists.

The Lindsey Wilson Players, under the direction of Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock, will present Arthur Miller's The Crucible and Stephen Schwartz's Godspell.

Brock will also give two one-actor performances. In November, Brock will present Mark Twain, An Evening with Mark Twain, and then in March he will perform Billy Herndon, One Man's Lincoln.

The Lindsey Wilson Choral Groups will perform four times, and the Lindsey Wilson Concert Band will give two performances during the school year.

"We are especially pleased that our series showcases our student and faculty talent," Hanna said. "Lindsey Wilson has some very talented students and faculty, many of whom are from Southcentral Kentucky."
