Details of One Day University At Tanglewood and the Ticket Luck value
Of the many educational events and lectures that are held year round in the US, the One Day University at Tanglewood stands out. Not only are some of the most inspiring and captivating lectures presented by equally captivating presenters but the event also features a classical music concert, featuring one of the nation's finest symphony orchestras. This particular event is set to take place at the Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood in 297 West Street in Lenox, Massachusetts. Many have already ordered One Day University at Tanglewood tickets for the event.
One Day University at Tanglewood will feature a series of lectures and then a classical music concert. The first of these lectures will be The Nature of Genius: From Leonardo da Vinci to Beethoven, by Craig Wright from the prestigious Yale University. He will be followed by Louis Masur from the Rutgers University whose lecture is titled Abraham Lincoln: Separating Fact from Fiction. The third lecture will be Five Paintings Every Art Lover Should See, by Tina Rivers from the Columbia University. The event will then be wrapped up by a spectacular performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, by the Boston Symphony Orchestra with conductor Bernard Haitink and the Koussevitzky Music Shed leading the proceedings.
The first of the three One Day University at Tanglewood lectures will see Craig Wright, from the Yale University, discuss what a genius is all about. It will include a critique of self–help books, as well as cover the many visionaries of our age including Charles Darwin, Michael Jackson, Michael Phelps, Warren Buffet, Mark Zuckerberg and even the Triple Crown winning horse, Secretariat. This is a lecture like no other, which is bound to engage rather than bore listeners with its unknown yet surprising facts and bits of humor placed here and there.
The second lecture will be presented by Louis Masur from the Rutgers University at One Day University at Tanglewood. His talk will deal with the legendary American president Abraham Lincoln often considered the greatest American president. He is also one of the most controversial and this lecture will strive to separate the facts from fiction. It will discuss topics such as Lincoln's depression, why he told so many stories, was he truly against slavery, did he ever free slaves. The lecture will also discuss if the Union was a success because of Lincoln or would it still have prospered without him. This and other issues will be discussed by Louis Masur as he takes a closer look at the legend that is President Abraham Lincoln in an attempt to uncover the man and not the myth he has become.
The third and final lecture will see Tina Rivers from the Columbia University talk on Five Paintings Every Art Lover Should See. This is an art lecture like no other that will not just discuss the best paintings. It will not also discuss the most historically significant paintings, the most expensive or the most famous but Tina Rivers will discuss pieces of art, from different places, genres and times.
After the three lectures, the Tanglewood Lawn Experience will take over for a mesmerizing classical music concert. The Boston Symphony Orchestra, with conductor Bernard Haitink, will perform Beethoven Symphony No. 9 with soprano Erin Wall, mezzo soprano Tamara Mumford, tenor Joseph Kaiser and bass baritone John Relyea. The orchestra will also be supported by the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, led by conductor John Oliver.
This event is part of the many that take place each year under the One Day University banner, an education program for adults founded by John Galvin and Steven Schragis. Each year, they organize many such one day events featuring leading American scholars and professors. Its programs have been held in New York City, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia, California and Florida.
Now is your chance to listen to the notable professors and then enjoy Beethoven Symphony No. 9.
