MISENHEIMER ó The 2008-2009 subscribers’ series for Pfeiffer University’s Events … Plus will feature lectures and cultural programs from October through April. “Each year, the Events…Plus series combines and shares the wonders of art and education with our neighbors,” said Sylvia Hoffmire, director of cultural programs. “This series demonstrates an excellent example of how we continue to involve our community in the life of the university.”
This year’s series includes informative lectures presented by Pfeiffer’s faculty and community speakers.
The season will kick off with a luncheon and address by Dean Kessel, president of Victory Junction Gang Camp, a NASCAR-themed retreat near Asheboro that enriches the lives of children with chronic medical conditions by providing life-changing camping experiences that are fun, safe and empowering.
Additional events offer a potpourri of the university’s finest musicians and singers in an interactive showcase, a one-act opera, “The Old Maid and the Thief,” by composer Gian Carlo Menotti. Several bonus events include art exhibits by respected artists.
A $75 season subscription will provide five cultural events, lectures and meals. Memberships are available through Sept. 26. For more information, contact Hoffmire at 704-463-3359 or sylvia.
