Join us on Saturday, June 4 at 3:00 pm to hear the distinguished American pianist Christopher Goodpasture perform an all-Beethoven program.
Like Shakespeare, Beethoven is generally recognized as one of the towering figures in the history of Western art. It’s important to understand why this is so. Christopher will explore Beethoven’s universal appeal through discussion and performance.
The program will be announced soon.
