This Week in Cultural Affairs

Posted on Monday, March 20, 2017 [2:03 PM]


Columbia, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College hosts two cultural affairs events this week, ranging from the historical figure of Kentuckian Happy Chandler to the global music of China and the world.

On Tuesday, March 21 at 3:30pm in the Norma & Glenn Hodge Center for Discipleship, Richard Crowe will present 'Happy on the Stump,' a Kentucky Humanities Council event examining the individual pieces which made former Kentucky Governor Happy Chandler productive as a public speaker and campaigner.

On Friday, March 24 at 7pm in the W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall, 'The Orchid Ensemble: Music from China and the World' will perform.

Director of Library Services Phil Hanna says that the 'Happy on the Stump' program takes an interesting look at a unique campaigning style during a time when the media operated in a different manner.

"In a world where politics has become a contest between one set of facts and another set of facts, and between one party's vision and another party's vision, it is refreshing to learn about how a politician such as Happy Chandler campaigned in a world that was not ruled by competing media factions," said Hanna.

'The Orchid Ensemble: Music from China and the World' on Friday will blend ancient musical instruments and traditions from China and beyond. The ensemble has embraced a variety of musical styles to its repertoire--ranging from the traditional and contemporary music of China, world music, new music, and creative improvisation.

Hanna said that bringing the Orchid Ensemble to campus this year was a perfect time to do so.

"Jonathan Bernard of the Orchid Ensemble has been working with me for several years to bring this talented group to Lindsey Wilson College," said Hanna. "With a campus community of diversity, our international students, their growing outreach to the community, and an interest in the music of the world, it just seemed right to bring them to Columbia this year."

Both events are free and open to all. If you'd like more information contact Phil Hanna or call 270-384-8102.
