10/23 MUSIC AND THE MILITARY
Travers’ favorite lecture will examine the use of music and its important role in the military, not just simply for “therapeutic” reasons or for marching. From sunrise to sunset, from the battlefield to the final resting place, music is front and center in all branches of the military.
Richard Travers is a music director and educator who has master’s degrees in music from Berklee College of Music and Choral Conducting from the Boston Conservatory.
