The Bible contains some well-known paradoxes, such as exaltation through humility, receiving through giving, gaining through losing, even living through dying. Such statements appear either contrary to conventional wisdom or seem absurd. However, Bach’s Lenten Cantatas are drawn to such rhetorical paradoxes. We will ask how Bach’s music helps ponder their puzzles. Join the Department of Music’s Dr. Marianne Pfau, Director of the ‘Angelus Series of Sacred Music,’ for a lecture and demonstration. The lecture provides a preview of the ‘Angelus Series,’ which will be performed live on February 24, 2018 at 7 p.m. in Founders Chapel.

Bridges Academy is a continuing education program for those 55 and older. Join us for exciting lectures given by USD’s leading faculty. All lectures are held mid-week on the picturesque USD campus. While the lecture series is free to all participants, the Office of Planned Giving encourages the growth of the Bridges Endowed Scholarship fund, which awards merit-based scholarships to undergraduate students. We look forward to seeing you on campus!
