A Reading for Lincoln

Join us for the final Notes at Noon concert of the fall semester! On Tuesday, November 18th Musselman Library presents a special dramatic and musical tribute to Lincoln, as part of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial celebration. Richard Sautter will appear as James Murdoch, one of the most well-known actors in mid-19th century America. During the Civil War, Murdoch gave benefit readings in order to raise money for soldiers and also performed for Lincoln and other members of his administration.

In addition to Sautter’s dramatic reading, traditional music will be presented by the local group Tin Kettle. So, bring your lunch and a friend to the Library Apse at noon on the 18th, for a one-of-a-kind performance.

For those of you who cannot make it to the lunchtime concert, there will be a second performance Tuesday night in the Majestic Theatre (Cinema 1) at 8:00pm. The evening performance is co-sponsored by the Friends of Musselman Library, Adams County Library System, The Sunderman Conservatory of Music and Civil War Era Studies. Both events are free and open to the public.
