2013-14 Cultural Affairs Season Offers 18 Free Events to Region

Posted on Thursday, August 29, 2013 [7:59 PM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College will offer the community 18 free cultural affairs events during the 2013-14 school year. The events include talks about ghosts, Kentucky's role in the War of 1812 and  human rights in the commonwealth, as well as more than a half-dozen musical performances that will feature classical and world music.

All of the events are free and open to the public, and all but the choral events will be held on LWC's A.P. White Campus.

 

"As part of Lindsey Wilson's service to Southcentral Kentucky, we are pleased that we can offer these 18 free events to members of the community," said LWC Director of Library Services Phil Hanna, who is also cultural affairs chair. "We have a diverse and interesting schedule of events that appeal to everyone."

 

Hanna noted that LWC's cultural affairs events are popular among the region's schools.

 

"Some grade school and high school teachers in the ara like to use the events to enhance their lesson plans or to tie them into what they are doing in the classroom," Hanna said.
