NORTH CENTRAL’S LUNCHEON LECTURE LOOKS AT WOODWINDS AND WEALTH IN DICKENS

 

            North Central Michigan College’s Luncheon Lecture on Friday, February 23, will take a look at the strong connections between Charles Dickens’ works and music. The program will be held in the Library Conference Center on the Petoskey campus. Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at noon.

            What's the connection between Charles Dickens and composer Felix Mendelssohn?  Most people associate Dickens with the written word, but there is a strong connection between Dickens and music. Suzanne Shumway, Ph.D., retired English professor, will explain the strong presence it exerts in most, if not all, of his novels. She will show how Dickens uses two characters, both woodwind players, to teach the moral lessons he wishes to impart to his readers.

            Seating is limited. Reservations are required.  Call 231-348-6600 or email luncheonlectures@ncmich.edu to reserve your place at the table.  Cost is $12 and includes lunch.
