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.
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.
