AUSOM Concert & Lecture Series

January 12, 2023 (1:00 pm - 2:00 pm)

Location: Festival Theatre

This Thursday, January 12, the Acadia School of Music's Concert & Lecture Series presents a lecture by Dr. Michelle Boyd: "Border Crossings: Following the Trail of Senor Louis G. Casseres, a West Indian Pianist in 19th-Century Halifax."

In this talk, Michelle will share her journey of discovery researching Louis Casseres, a pianist who lived in Halifax, NS, between 1852-1858.  Following his trail of historical 'breadcrumbs' across North America reveals a fascinating web of connections... and that there's more to the story of Casseres than what first meets the eye!

This event begins at 1pm in the Festival Theatre Building. The Concert and Lecture Series is free and community members are welcome to attend. Please note that masks are required on the Acadia campus.
