The Bard on Bridge Street!
Insights Into Shakespeare 
and Period Music by Concinnity

In anticipation of The Acting Company’s Shakespearean productions on February 26 and 27 at SUNY Oswego, the river’s end bookstore and ARTSwego will host an evening of discussions and music focused on the Bard.

Dr. Bruce Altschuler, recently retired from the political science department of SUNY Oswego and author of Shakespeare and Politics will discuss why today’s audiences should care about Hamlet. SUNY Oswego English professor Dr. Patrick Murphy will provide insights into Shakespeare and contemporary playwright Tom Stoppard. In between these discussions, the female vocal ensemble Concinnity will perform music of the period with lyrics based on Shakespearean texts.
