Arlene Shannon, Adult Programming and Outreach Specialist at the Pendleton Library, is especially excited about the way the Kamalay presents his material to his audience.
“This type of program not only provides entertainment, but it also educates the public,” said Shannon. “Presenting history with music helps the listener retain more. When you think of the music, you’ll think of the lecture. And when you think of the lecture, you’ll think of the music.”
Those interested in attending the free program are encouraged to call the library at (765) 778-7527 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Refreshments will be served following the presentation.
Kamalay’s website, www.raykamalay.com, features links to his solo and group performances as well as more information on his lectures.
