SALISBURY — Dr. Racelle Weiman, who will be in Salisbury April 11 for a guest speaking appearance, is featured in a Public Broadcasting Service documentary film Monday night.

The PBS documentary, relating to the rescue of Jews in the Philippines, will air at 10 p.m. Monday on WTVI in Charlotte.


Weiman is executive director of the Dialogue Institute at Temple University. She spoke in Salisbury last year and will be returning April 11 for another presentation on how wars and government often lead to the suppression of music.

The Salisbury Symphony is host for the April 11 luncheon, “Let Freedom Ring: Music as a Casualty of War.” The event starts at noon April 11 at First United Methodist Church on South Church Street.

The cost is $35 per person. Tickets can be purchased at salisburysymphony.org. More information is available on the website and by calling 704-637-4314.

At 7:30 p.m. May 1, Salisbury Symphony also will sponsor the guest appearance of University of Mount Union football coach Larry Kehres, who has the highest winning percentage among coaches in football history.

That event will be held at the J.F. Hurley Family YMCA. Call the symphony office at 704-637-4314 for more information. The Post will have more information on Kehres’ visit at a later date.
