Music featured in latest lecture series

The Saturday Lecture Series theme at ElderCollege this semester is Music in the Comox Valley,

The Saturday Lecture Series theme at ElderCollege this semester is Music in the Comox Valley, and this Saturday local musicians Rick Husband and Dale Graham will speak about their life with jazz. As they describe it, “Jazz music is like a big tent with many rooms and a few holes in the roof. There are many sub-types of jazz, and it may be hard to tell at times whether you are inside or outside the tent.”

Their names will be familiar to many in the community as they are involved in the Georgia Straight Jazz Society and often perform at local venues. On Saturday they will take you on a musical tour through the rooms of jazz, and entertain you along the way.

Anyone 55 or older is welcome to come to listen to this lecture. It starts at 10 a.m. to noon and is at the Stan Hagen Theatre on the North Island College campus, and the cost is $10. Come early as there is limited seating.

For more information about this series, or to find out about becoming a member of ElderCollege, phone 250-334-5000 (local 4602).
