A day of 50-minute sessions, starting at 10 a.m. Free and open to the public, in the Bonnie Hurlburt Student Center Auditorium (“The Bonnie”), on Jefferson Street between Fairfax and Clement Streets.
I'm especially looking forward to the two history-minded 5-string virtuosos speaking -- and, I suspect, picking a bit -- at 3p.m.
Feel free to send this page to anyone else who can't easily read the colorful PDF flyer the sponsors have been sending around. I just wanted this here to link to my calendar... And I hope the school paper will dig up a little more about each event.
