International Guitar Night

8:00 pm

$24 in advance

$28 at the door (subject to availability)

www.internationalguitarnight.com

 

Founder of International Guitar Night Brian Gore will be joined by Italy’s Pino Forastiere, England’s  Jon Gomm, and Argentina’s Quique Sinesi. Forastiere and Gomm are revered in contemporary steel string guitar circles for their unique mix of melody, improvisation, and hand percussion using the strings, the fret board, and the body of the guitar while Sinesi is a master of many South American melodies and rhythms on both guitar and charango. Add to that Gore’s unique finger style technique and the quartet is nicely rounded out—so with a mixture of Italy, Argentina, England, and the US, International Guitar Night is sure to hit the high notes of everyone’s musical palate.

Faith and Freedom in the Civil War

Join Barbara Franco, Founding Executive Director of the newly-opened Gettysburg Seminary Ridge Museum, as she explores how the religious foment, innovation, and change wrought by the Second Great Awakening influenced thinking about moral issues of war and slavery, and how  Americans of all faiths who met at Gettysburg grappled not only with life and death, but with divergent ideas of faith and freedom that would shape the nation’s future.

A graduate of Bryn Mawr College and the Cooperstown Graduate Program in Museum Studies, Barbara Franco has worked in museums and historical organizations throughout her career.  She is currently Executive Director of the Seminary Ridge Museum, which opened on July 1, 2013 on the campus of the Lutheran Theological Seminary of Gettysburg — one of the lasting legacies of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and the American Civil War.
