Winchester Academy

June 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

We Rise Together: Journey to embrace others as Equals

Jonathan Overby, ethnomusicologist, lyric baritone, clinician, conference presenter,  lecturer, and WPR host will discuss seeking and discovering a new pathway to engaging the stranger among us even as we struggle in the face of public policies, deeply seeded religious traditions, ill-gotten privilege, and widespread hatred.

Thank Farmers State Bank for sponsoring this program.

The Winchester Academy of Waupaca presents a series of lectures throughout the year. Unless otherwise noted, programs are held in the downstairs meeting rooms of the Waupaca Area Public Library. Each presentation lasts approximately one hour and is followed by discussion and refreshments. There is no admission charge. Should a late cancellation be necessary, it will be announced on WDUX (fm 92.7). All programs begin at 6:30 P.M.

The name “Winchester Academy” implies a building and physical structure, but there is none. The Academy is a voluntary organization with a Board of Trustees comprised of area citizens that fosters lifelong learning based on ideas originating in Scandinavian folk academies. The Academy offers, on average, twenty-five programs annually. There is no membership required for attendance at programs. All are FREE of charge and open to the general public. Programs are usually held at the Waupaca Area Public Library on Monday evenings at 6:30. Other venues and days of the week are occasionally used for special seminars and musical programs (e.g., churches, or other sites that can accommodate larger crowds). Some programs might include controversial subject matter, but the Academy takes no position and seeks to provide balanced and reliable information.
