A performance of Joe's Odyssey, a folk opera by Joe Goodkin, sponsored by Knox alumni Mark and Kathryn Leider.
From the artist's website:
"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 30 minute continuous performance of 24 original songs with lyrics inspired by Odysseus' famous exploits."
