Inspired by the book Becoming Who You Are by James Matrin S.J., Dr. JW Turner presents a program of solo cello music from the 20th and 21st centuries featuring composers Frank Corcoran, Harald Genzmer, Jeffrey Harrington, Bernard Heiden, and Jorge Muñiz.
Turner explains how his inspiration came from the book Becoming Who You Are, by James Martin, S.J., and how he relates to the book that explores Thomas Merton’s notion of the “true” and “false” self. Fr. Martin weaves a compelling narrative drawing from his own experiences as well as the lives and writings of Merton and Henri Nouwen. Essentially, he argues, all of us were called into being with the potential for sanctity. While pursuing this sanctity may seem to involve becoming “someone else,” in fact, just the opposite is true; in stripping away our pettiness, jealousy, and pretentions, we discover who we actually are.
This event is open to the public.
No tickets required.
