Schwartz Center for Performing Arts
All three bassoonists studied under Loren Glickman, one of America's foremost bassoon soloists and a founding artist of the prestigious Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Glickman still composes, and for the last decade he's been transcribing works for the bassoon. For the last eight years the Glickman Ensemble has been playing together and recording those transcriptions, fulfilling their mission "to bring the beautiful, sonorous sounds of the bassoon to the public through our love of chamber music."
In this free lecture sponsored by Cornell's School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions, Dr. Allen C. Guelzo will examine the elements that help to make the Gettysburg Address so memorable. The Henry R. Luce Professor of the Civil War Era at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Guelzo is the author of numerous books about Lincoln and the Civil War, including Gettysburg: The Last Invasion (2013), which spent eight weeks on the New York Times best-seller list and which won the Lincoln Prize for 2014, the inaugural Guggenheim-Lehrman Prize in Military History, the Fletcher Pratt Award of the New York City Round Table, and the Richard Harwell Award of the Atlanta Civil War Round Table.
