I'll Be This Evening's Guest Speaker at the Mat-Su Democrats June Egan Dinner

The title of my talk is "A Short History of Protest Classical Music." I'll talk about how classical composers, from the time of Mozart and Beethoven, until now, challenged the aristocracy, the Church and helped social revolutionaries in their struggles for human rights, up until the present day. With multimedia and musical aids.

6:00 p.m. - Friday June 17th
Turkey Red Restaurant, Palmer
