I noticed a pair of interesting activities you might want to put on your calendar this week. We are including a brief description and links to find out more information. Get out and get away from school work!
Wake Forest professors Stewart Carter (right) and Brian Gorelick are again putting on an annual concert that displays the art of Renaissance music. This year’s Collegium Musicum Concert, featuring German music of the 16th and 17th centuries, will be held at 7:30 pm, Nov. 11, in Brendle Recital Hall.
Student musicians will perform on period instruments, including recorders and violas da gamba, the Renaissance version of the cello.
Greg Mortenson (left), internationally known for promoting peace by building schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan, will speak at Wake Forest University at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12, in Wait Chapel. He is the author of the best selling books “Three Cups of Tea” and “Stones into Schools.”
A benefit for the BOOKMARKS festival, “A Conversation with Greg Mortenson” is co-sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain. Admission for students is $10.
