BEOWULF: HEROES, MONSTERS, TREASURE, AND A DRAGON
The remarkable medieval epic ‘Beowulf’ was written in England at least 1.000 years ago, and it includes myth and folklore far older still. It’s an action-adventure tale, but also a parable with a Christian message. The only ‘Beowulf’ manuscript was not translated or published until the 19th century, but it has become a world literature classic since then. Professor J.R.R. Tolkien used ‘Beowulf’ in the creation of his novels ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’. Dr. Moe wrote his PhD dissertation about ‘Beowulf’ and in this presentation, he’ll retell this old story and discuss its themes.

IT STARTED WITH SHAKESPEARE
Let’s celebrate 400 years of Shakespeare’s stories with a feast of music that began its life with connections to one of his plays and then found a life of its own outside of the dramas. Songs, incidental music, ballets, musicals – inspired by Shakespeare over the years. Many weddings include Mendelssohn’s music for “Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Let’s see what else has found its way into our musical world.

MOUNT RUSHMORE: THE CARVING OF AN ICON
Today, more than two million people each year visit Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Fourteen years, four hundred workers, 450,000 tons of rock, and nearly one million dollars. Those are the statistics behind the carving of Mount Rushmore. The story is even more interesting.
