      The Value of Music to US Society

      Join the Library Associates on Friday, September 20 for a lecture, light lunch, exhibition, and musical performance. The lecture, which features various members of the Future of Music Coalition, is entitled “The Value of Music to US Society.” The lecture will begin at 10:30 am in the Murray Room on the 5th floor of Georgetown University’s Lauinger Library. Participants will enjoy a light lunch and a chance to view the Booth Family Center for Special Collections exhibition. At 12:15, participants will walk to McNeir Auditorium to hear Rebecca Gates perform. Rebecca Gates is a US-based musician, curator, artist and audio editor. She has released five albums, three as leader of the critically acclaimed group The Spinanes (Sub Pop), toured internationally, and appeared as a vocalist on numerous records by artists as wide ranging as The Decemberists and Willie Nelson. Her record Ruby Series was hailed by Spin Magazine as “warm, thoughtful, and melodically gorgeous.” The program ends at 1:30, followed by a brief question-and-answer session. This event is a partnership between the Georgetown University Music Program and Lauinger Library.
