The Odyssey, performed by Joe Goodkin
Start Date: 11/6/2018Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 11/6/2018End Time: 8:00 PM

Event Description:

Joe Goodkin's Odyssey is a 30 minute original musical composition for solo acoustic guitar and voice.  Drawing on his Bachelor's Degree in Classics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his years as a professional musician, Joe's performance represents in a contemporary musical mode both the abridged plot and the performance circumstances of Homer's original oral composition of The Odyssey. Part lecture, part musical performance, and part interactive discussion, the centerpiece of Joe's program is a continuous performance of 24 original songs with lyrics inspired by Odysseus' famous exploits. Joe has performed his Odyssey over 270 times in 36 U.S. states and Canada, and has been honored with several ASCAP Composers awards.

To meet Joe and hear his story about becoming a modern bard, come to lunch in the Latin Study on Tuesday, November 6, at 12:30pm.
