Robert Shaw – Film

Gibble Auditorium, Esbenshade Hall 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

ShawConducting Robert Shaw – Man of Many Voices

Don’t miss your chance to see the “poignant and compelling” (NY Times) documentary Robert Shaw – Man of Many Voices, which we’ll screen at Elizabethtown College’s Gibble Auditorium Thursday, April 27.  The moving film traces the journey of a small town California boy who planned to be a minister, but instead became the greatest conductor of choral music the world has ever known.

At the heart of the film is the mystery of Shaw’s genius. With no formal musical training, he became legendary for his interpretations of classical music’s great choral masterpieces.  Shaw had a mystical belief in the power of community.  He could communicate his passion for music with spellbinding intensity, and changed the course of musical history through the many voices he set on fire with an enduring love of music.

Tickets $7

Parking for Gibble Auditorium is in the Leffler Chapel lot.  Someone will be standing outside Leffler Chapel (or in the lobby in case of inclement weather) to direct you to Gibble Auditorium.

About Music at Gretna

Μusic at Gretna has filled the Mt. Gretna Playhouse with music since 1976 and Leffler Performance Center at Elizabethtown College since 1995. At the core of our mission is the great stream of Western music that began a millennium ago in Europe and gathered force as musicians from all countries and continents joined the flow through centuries. Among humanity's greatest achievements, that music has become a universal means of communication that can be enhanced by expressive and creative performance. We try to be courageous explorers of our vast musical universe.
