Announcing Fall Lecture Series
LLM announces another outstanding fall lecture season.
On Tuesdays from October 11 to November 29, 2022, Olivier Courteaux is presenting China: The History and Geopolitics of a Superpower and on Thursdays from October 13 to December 1, 2022, Howard Mednick brings us What Is This Thing Called Classical Music? LLM is pleased to be featuring these renowned speakers and their timely and popular topics this fall.
More exciting news: LLM volunteers are exploring the possibility of bringing our fall speakers to a location in Mississauga and reintroducing in-person lectures, in addition to the ongoing virtual option. This will be confirmed by early September when registration will open as well.
In the next few weeks, a brief survey will be circulated among past audience members and posted on this website to help LLM plan the future direction of our lectures. Audiences will have more options: participating via Zoom, enjoying the opportunity to connect with friends at an in-person lecture, or watching a recorded session at your leisure.
Whether in person or virtual, LLM’s two fall lecture series will be something to look forward to as we emerge from the restrictions of this long pandemic.
China: The History and Geopolitics of a Superpower
A new world order is emerging as proposed in 2013 by Xi Jinping: “The realization of the Chinese dream will bring happiness to the Chinese people as well as to the other peoples of the world.” Behind the words, what is China really up to?
What is This Thing Called Classical Music?
This lecture series will review several styles, genres and formats of classical music. We will come away with a better understanding of what classical music is all about.
