January 28, 2020

Tenor and Guitarist Brian Nedvin will present a lecture-recital on Tuesday, January 28, on the campus of Southeastern Oklahoma State University at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Recital Hall. The lecture-recital will feature works in English, Yiddish, and Hebrew that were written during the Holocaust. While there will be no graphic images used during the lecture, it is an extremely emotional presentation with photos that accompany the song selections.

No admission fee is required for this performance.

Dr. Nedvin is an Associate Professor of Voice in the F. Ludwig Diehn School of Music at Old Dominion University where he is a studio voice instructor, coordinator of the vocal area, and director of opera and musical theatre productions.
