August 9 – Summer Series #7: “Musicians in Times of Conflict, or, How I Reconcile My Radical Artistic and Radical Political Beliefs” – Dan Weymouth, Service Leader
In an era where we are challenged with enormous political, social and geological challenges, what is the social utility of music? As an artist of conscience, this is a question I have considered for decades. Taking my cue from Howard Zinn’s Artists in Times of War — with supporting evidence from a variety of authors (including W.E.B. Du Bois and Wendell Barry), as well as several of my own compositions—I make a passionate case for the necessity of musical art.
